Design and design methods more and more play a central role when it comes to solving social and economic problems. The expert meetings ›Designing Design Education‹ question in how far this affects the contemporary education of design.
Experts from different fields exchange their experiences and ideas and discuss amongst others on how a sustainable and more humanitarian approach to design can be taught, how designers can be prepared for a future of changing economic models, about a fruitful relation between design and other disciplines in education and about advantages and challenges of having design courses in an art school.
These and other topics will be dealt with in eight expert meetings. Participants are invited to join the discussion and propose their own tickets.
