Building Community: Design Education for a Sustainable Future
This year’s conference theme Building Community: Design Education for a Sustainable Future stresses the importance of design education in building future societies. Here, community building goes beyond the local level to the society as a whole. The conference aims to:

Explore how managing different perspectives on community can help students and scholars to develop projects in a larger and more complex context
Seek new perspectives on what “building community” means and involves
Seek aesthetic engagement with game dynamics in product design
Explore the broadening of the design profession on health and service design.
Explore how engineering and product design education contributes to a balanced development of technological opportunities and the needs of people in the future
These aims will be addressed through the following conference topics related to the Engineering and Product Design Education:
Design education in practice
Collaboration in industrial involvement in design education
Creativity and innovation in design education
Ethics and social issues in design education
Assessment methods in design education
New design education paradigms
Student papers related to design education
