Learn x Design is a conference for the wide range of topics from theoretical research to practical application. On a career level, the study of design is to create a well-crafted, aesthetic fit of form to function, materials, and tools. Each designed item contains a narrative about the culture from which it evolved, about the person who produced it, and the values and practices of both. Research develops theories and principles about learning, tests and validates them for implementation in classroom, policy and practice.
This international conference is a springboard for sharing ideas and concepts about contemporary design education research and the teaching of design. Contributors are invited to submit research that deals with different facets of approaches to design education research, pedagogy and teaching. All papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed. This conference is open to research and teaching methodology in any aspect and discipline of design education.
