(ii) encouraging discussion and collaboration.

The objectives are to provide the participants with:
– insight into existing design theories and models to enable them to select a suitable theoretical foundation;
– an overview of design research methods to enable them to develop the most appropriate approach for their own research;
– an interactive environment in which individual research topics are presented to and discussed with other participants and the summer school lecturers;
– the opportunity to get to know and learn from other researchers and develop long-term collaborations.

Attendees should be prepared to attend activities on both weeks.
