Event description
After One Year of Distance Design Education, what have we learned?

About this Event

Presentation and discussion on the subject of:

A Year of Distance and Online Design Education

In March, it will be a year since we set up the #DistanceDesignEd blog to support the changes design educators were facing in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

This discussion session will invite thoughts and reflections from a range of design educators, including Sucharita Beniwal, Lesley-Anne Noel, Isabel Prochner, Lorraine Marshalsey, and James Corazzo, on what the impact has been for design education.

About the series

The global and local challenges we all face as design educators have asked difficult questions about where, when and how we engage in teaching. Yet other events have posed even harder questions around who is represented / included in, and what the purpose of, design education is in contemporary society.

In parallel to the contextual challenges, several initiatives have begun to explore the future of design education, such as the Design Declaration Summit held last year and, more recently, the Future of Design Education project, which proposes a more structured and explicit approach. PedSIG have been actively involved in many of these initiatives reflecting the views of members gathered through the PedSIG conferences, Learn X Design series.

Given the relevance and importance of this subject, the DRS Education SIG is continuing the series of discussion events exploring and sharing our ideas and thoughts on ‘Futures of Design Education’.

We are particularly keen to help raise awareness of the plurality of possible futures represented by our membership. PedSIG is an expert community of practice and research and our wisdom and ideas are valuable in surfacing many constructions of design education (epistemologies, ontologies, experiences, wisdoms).

Anyone interested in design education is welcome to join these events.
