Design Society Rigi Meeting 2016, Erlangen, Germany 2
Special Interest Group (SIG)

Design Practice

Interest: Practice, Research

Agenda

The overarching objective of this SIG is to bring practitioners and researchers together through the capture, study and communication of authentic, relevant and current design challenges in their contexts, from all areas of design practice (industry, government, healthcare, start-ups etc.)

Specifically, we aim to:
• Encourage practitioners to challenge researchers
• Encourage academics to understand design practice
• Express the value of design research to practitioners
• Increase awareness to industry and other sectors of the availability and utility of design methods, principles, ‘theories’ and tools.

Focus

Our focus is to invite design challenges from practice to be shared through various mechanisms, and to capture these challenges and contexts. For example, one currently available mechanism is the case study format, with video and other exhibits.
