Abstract

The very definition of a university is a place where research and education are intertwined. When
there is no research, a university will look like a place for vocational training, and when there are no
students to teach, the university is no more than a research institution. This convention of research and
education is firstly explained as a practice where research (as in the generation of new knowledge)
informs education. So that education develops constantly and is ensured of the latest insights in the
discipline. In a more sophisticated integration of research and education, the two pillars of university
practice mutually support each other. In this paper we want to shed light on this mutual support
alongside nine years of experience with design research in education, going beyond the mere practices
of using students as simple test subjects filling in questionnaires, and proposing different levels of
design research results instead.

Keywords: Research through design, research through education, project based education, design process, design curriculum.
