CALL – for papers to DRS // CUMULUS Oslo 2013

Design Learning for Tomorrow 
- Design Education from Kindergarten to PhD
The 2nd International Conference for Design Education Researchers 
Oslo, Norway
14 - 17 May 2013

Deadline for intention to submit a paper: 24 July 2012
Deadline for workshop and symposia proposals: 2 October 2012
Deadline for full papers: 30 October 2012

This international conference, organised by 
 the Faculty of Technology, Art and Design at Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, 
DRS (Design Research Society) and CUMULUS (the International Association of Universities and Colleges of Art, Design and Media) is a springboard for sharing ideas and concepts about contemporary design education research. Contributors are invited to submit research that deals with different facets of contemporary approaches to design education research. All papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed. This conference is open to research in any aspect and discipline of design education.

Designed artefacts and solutions influence our lives and values, both from a personal and societal perspective. Designers, decision makers, investors and consumers hold different positions in the design process, but they all make choices that will influence our future visual and material culture. To promote sustainability and meet global challenges for the future, professional designers are dependent on critical consumers and a design literate general public.  For this purpose design education is important for all. The organisers propose that design education in general education represents both a foundation for professional design education and a vital requirement for developing the general public’s competence for informed decision making.

Submissions are invited along the following themes:
  • Philosophy of design education
  • Design curriculum
  • Design knowledge
  • Design education for non-designers
  • Research informed designed education – Design education informing research
  • Multidisciplinary design education
  • Challenges in design education methods
  • Assessment
  • eLearning
  • Internationalisation of design education
The organisers are also seeking expression of interest to conduct workshops and symposia.

They especially welcome submissions from early career researchers, PhD candidates and Master students with work in progress.
