Abstract

Future wellbeing is depending on human competences in order to strengthen a sustainable development. This requires system thinking and ability to deal with complexity, dynamic and a vast of information. `We need to move away from present principles of breaking down problems into components and give more attention to the underlying models, information management and shared goals. Simple machine understanding and obvious goals are not suitable to explain present states or how to reach a better state` (1).
`Design is a universal method in the Age of Information` (2). Education of interdisciplinary and intercultural teams in design and the understanding of design as a process of transformation and information management call for a model with capacity to facilitate both `the what` and `the how.`
This paper will describe a systemic model of design based on a holistic approach to design developed by the author in relation to a design-engineering education at Aalborg University. It will exemplify how the model has been used in workshops on team designing, challenged design learning and affected design competence. In specific it will investigate the influence of visual models on the perception of design, design thinking and communication in design. Trying to answer the question: How can visual system models facilitate learning in design thinking and team designing?
