Design Educators as Change Agents in RE-Designing Education
Kent State University, United States of America
The primary aim of this workshop is to generate ideas on re-designing education, worldwide. The participants, working in small teams, will use the design process steps to define strategies, approaches and rationale for ways that design educators could be change agents in the future of education. A context will be provided from a 2019 international symposium entitled Re-Designing Education to Shape a Better World. The symposium, which took place in Florence, Italy, brought together thought leaders that represented 14 countries from diverse ethnicities, cultures, and backgrounds. Reasons for why education is changing will be covered along with key concepts for improving education that emerged at the symposium. The overview will culminate with the relationship to those concepts and how they foreshadowed today’s changing times as a result of the COVID pandemic disruption. After the conference, the workshop leader will synthesize the ideas into a report, which will be circulated to various design educators and organizations.
