Two Work Groups Announced

The Work Groups are intended to provide an effective framework to address the complicated issues facing design educators and educational institutions and to collaboratively establish next steps for the Council. 

ico-D Educational Members are invited and encouraged to join the Work Groups by registering representatives by 20 April.


Members can sign up and participate under the following themes:

  • Design Research

  • Curriculum Development, Standards and Evaluation

An online framework will be established for each Work Group where participants will share materials and conduct discussions.  Each Work Group will be chaired by a Chairperson appointed by the ico-D Board who will be accompanied by a Board liaison.
 
The outcomes of the EduPM Work Groups will be presented at the Educational Platform Meeting in Gwangju, alongside the International Design Congress and the 26 General Assembly.
