Time and place: (between 30.10.-1.11.2019/ 2 hours, room will be confirmed later)
Chair: Martti Raevaara – firstname.lastname@example.org
Within the Cumulus network there are a lot of expertise in art and design pedagogy. Many schools and institutions implement also an art and design teacher education degree programme or special study modules of art and design pedagogy.
We are interested in aggregating this expertise within Cumulus and launched a working group under art and design teacher education and pedagogy in Cumulus Kolding Conference May 2017 and following the meetings in Cumulus Paris April 2018, Wuxi November 2018 and last time in Rovaniemi May 2019. This will be 5rd meeting of the group and it is open to anyone interested in sharing, exploring and developing together art and design pedagogy. Please feel welcome to the group meetings.
The meeting will include some presentations of case studies and introductions of participants and discussion based on presentations. As well we should share ideas for deepening and expanding our future working group collaboration in different forms.
Call for introduction and presentations by participants
If you are interested in sharing your teaching experiences and/or projects, please contact Martti Raevaara via email (email@example.com). It would be nice to get a title of your introduction/ presentation and in a nut shell some points of the content, key words would be nice too. Please submit your proposal to Martti by Tue 22.10. at the latest, Martti will then schedule the working group programme.

Cumulus Sustainability Working Group
Title: Systems Thinking and Sustainable Design
Carolina Obregon, who teaches Sustainable Fashion and co-teaches the Biodesign Challenge at Universidad de los Andes, will present, and provide the opportunity for participants to test, the systems thinking and mapping approach that she employs when teaching students how direct the design solutions in sustainable ways
For Carolina, systems thinking forms the backbone of every sustainable endeavour, as this approach helps students realize how connected, and interconnected our design practice is, while also providing opportunities to highlight the importance of and evaluate all of the actors in the design challenge.

Cumulus Working Group Women in Design
“Women in Design” will be a platform for exchange, inspiration and mentorship. Sharing experiences and strategies and methods for coping will contribute to building a global network of women to support and promote each other.
Accessing and sharing knowledge on the challenges many women face can contribute to building assertiveness and empowering women in design, across cultures, to have the courage to take on visible, important positions within their society.
Who: women in design in the broadest sense: teachers students other
No registration – but it would be lovely to have some participants willing to share their experiences and prepare to do so short input (about 5 minutes). I would be grateful for feeback.
