DesignEd Asia 2011 (Nov 2011, Hong Kong)

Dates: 29-30 November 2011
Location: Hong Kong
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 31 July 2011

Jointly hosted by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design & Hong Kong Design Institute

As part of the 2-day programme, design researchers from international educational institutions will be presenting papers at the Conference. For those who have been conducting design research, this is a great opportunity to share pioneering views with other professionals in the industry.

Call for Abstracts

DesignEd Asia plays an important role in providing contexts for the testing of radical propositions, the gestation of transformative strategies and the nurturing of speculative approaches that spur and inform the continuing evolution of the professional practice of design. We are seeking papers that propose positions on the relationship between design academia and the design professions, and demonstrate how these positions are actualized in actual pedagogical practice and initiatives within schools of design.

We invite papers addressing the following areas:

  • facilitating the transition between academia and industry
  • educating for change
  • design education beyond the design professions
  • dissemination and impact
