3-day Tutorial - Introduction to design theory for PhD students (January 31st-February 2nd)
Target audience is scholars, especially PhD students, who are interested in research topics related to design theory. The objectives of the session are:
• To learn some of the foundational models used in design theory and research, their relationship and the historical context within which they were proposed,
• To develop skills in applying a variety of design methods in various situations for different purposes – including for research,
• To interact with and learn from specialist researchers in the field to develop and refine their own research questions and to build future collaboration opportunities.
Detailed program of the special session will be shortly available. Registration details are given below.
