Registration is open now! for the 1st International Symposium for Design Education Researchers. There are now only 40 places available. For Cumulus and DRS members the registration fees are 80 EUR.

DRS PedSIG (Design Research Society Special Interest Group on Design Pedagogy) and Cumulus (the International Association of Universities and Colleges of Art, Design and Media) invite you to attend the 1st International Symposium for Design Education Researchers in Paris, France.
The symposium’s overarching aim is to explore how innovation in education is informed by and is informing design research. We hope that the symposium will provide a space for design educators to continue to review their educational practices and the assumptions underpinning these practices. In order to do this we have invited a diverse mix of speakers to explore the symposium’s theme. For list of confirm speakers see the symposium’s website

We have also prepared a workshop on the theme of: Dissemination Strategies – Author, Editor and Publisher (max. 45 participants). The aim is to outline and discuss strategies that might help you to get published. We have invited three workshop facilitators to provide you with perspectives from a book author, a journal editor and a publisher.

The event will be hosted by Chambre de commerce et d’industrie de Paris in La Bourse de Commerce on 18 May and on 19 May by Strate Collège Designers.

More information on the Symposium is available from its website:
