The allure of the digital and beyond.

Research in the learning and teaching of design.

→ The Fourth International Conference for Design Education Researchers
Organised and hosted by Ravensbourne, London 27 → 30 June 2017

→ Conference supported by and in collaboration with

→ Welcome

This conference brings together researchers and practitioners from a wide variety of higher education design settings with the intention of connecting emergent models and ideas around the digital, with the scholarship of teaching and learning. The Conference will be held in London at Ravensbourne on the Greenwich Peninsula.

We also look to issues beyond the attraction of the digital in learning: other ways of acting, knowing and becoming in design – in the full range of educational settings from kindergarten to PhD.

Student’s learning approaches demand creative solutions to a wide range of complex themes and contexts. We welcome debates on the scope of learner literacies and studies that investigate how formal and informal learning can be synergized.

Dialogues that address new cultures of learning, issues of learner identities, tutor roles, space and their implications in the design of learning environments are also encouraged. In this context the digital imbues all such practices.

This is a call for papers and we hope you will make a date in your diary to contribute to the conference.Places will be limited and an international committee will review the submitted papers. Opportunities to publish with a range of international journals will be available for successful research articles following the conference.

Themes include but are not excluded to:

— Research in design education
— Hybrid models: digital/analogue
— Wearables and its pedagogy
— Remote collaboration including international
— Technology impact on design
— E-learning and design
— Learning through digital
— Inter/ transdisciplinarity in learning and teaching
— Learning in design practice
— Teaching in design practice
— Virtual reality (VR/AR)
— Considering the local, international, and the global contexts of design eduction

The submission deadline for papers that have been accepted subject to suggested adjustments is 7th June 2017.
