Special Issue of the Industrial Design Educators Network: Creating Design Research (March 2014)

Deadline for abstracts: 10 March 2014
Website: http://idenjournal.com

IDEN issue #3 is calling for papers for peer review, and non peer reviewed opinion pieces, case studies, projects, etc around the theme of Creating Design Research.

Designers writing about their research practice, their research approach and their research experience in both formal (academic papers, journal articles, PhD) and applied (in Industry, processes, materials, etc…) ways. This issue is inviting different perspectives of how Designers question things and how they engage and investigate the concepts behind the existing and the not yet existing material (and immaterial) worlds. How are designers looking at the world in order to find points of design intervention? This could not only be an exploration or demonstration of research methodologies but also include practical and exploratory, experimental or even intuitive approaches. We want you to share how you as a Designer arrive at new or improved ways of doing things.

We would like to encourage Industrial Designers to consider contributing to issue 3 as an opportunity to share with our community an aspect of your work, student or professional projects and research projects – (images please). To all Industrial Design related PhD  students and graduates, please send us a few words about your thesis and a reflection on your current feelings about the PhD, whether completed or not.

About (Industrial Design Educators Network – Australia) IDEN
IDEN has over the last several years evolved as an informal grouping of Industrial Design program heads from across Australia and New Zealand. It first formed as the Industrial Design National Network in 2005. The Network discussed a range of shared concerns and initiatives around benchmarking curriculums, graduate standards and employer expectations. Its new name, IDEN, was formulated as an inclusive acronym for our NZ colleagues and the greater Asia Pacific region.
