The Design Education Committee of the Design Engineering Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers is pleased to announce the 9th International Conference on Design Education.

With the success of the 2011 International Conference on Design Education (DEC), the theme for 2012 continues the emphasis on scholarship in design education and the creation of archival literature in this area.  Three strands of paper topics that fall under the scholarship of design education umbrella include: 1) Scholarly Research in Design Education, 2) Student Engagement in Design Education, and 3) Best Practices in Design and Design Education. Eleven sessions for the conference that highlight these areas are described in the detailed topic announcements below.  These have been selected to emphasize fundamentals and quantification in the design education field.  Authors are encouraged to submit their best work to the most appropriate topic area ­ topics and sessions will later be adjusted to create the most effective conference program.  Key papers will be advanced to the Journal of Mechanical Design. The organizers look forward to your taking part in the scholarly exchange, and to seeing you in Chicago!

Paper topics include, but are not limited to the following:

DEC-1: Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Design
DEC-2: Best Practices and Lessons Learned in Design Education
DEC-3: Experiential Learning and New Pedagogy for Engineering Design Education
DEC-4: Distributed and Cyber Learning in Engineering Design
