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
