Session Title: What can design teaching learn from contemporary collaborative design practices?
Collaboration is nothing new to design teaching : both historically-significant design schools and applied arts institutes in France have integrated collaborative work into their teaching methods (whether between designers or in association with other disciplines). However, a new brand of design activities seems to be centered around new values of collaboration : “participatory design”, “co-design” or even “open-design”, etc.
