  2. In conjunction with a CAA session on design history pedagogy that Victoria Pass and I co-chaired this week in Chicago, I have created a website called Design History Teaching Resources that I'm hoping can become a helpful resource for people teaching in the field of design history. I have started adding content, but it is based only on what I have in my own experience, and I would like to invite submissions from anyone on the DSF list who has useful content they are willing to contribute. If you have a successful syllabus, assignment brief, or activity prompt you are willing to share with colleagues, I hope you will send it in. Also if there are other structures, sections, or ways of organizing that would make this effort more useful to you, please feel free to suggest them. Many thanks for your help in building this shared resource! www.designhistoryteachingresources.org

  7. http://drslxd19.id.metu.edu.tr/call-for-papers/ 5th International Conference for Design Education Researchers Middle East Technical University Campus, Ankara Call for Papers, deadline November 19, 2018 Conference dates: July 9–12, 2019. The LearnXdesign is a conference series by DRS Special Interest Group in Design Pedagogy (PedSIG), cultivating symbiotic exchanges between design education and design research. The first symposium in the series was held in Paris in 2011 and covered a small number of invited presentations mainly by British and continental European researchers. The Oslo 2013 and Chicago 2015 conferences were embraced by the design education research community at large and involved an impressive number of contributions across design disciplines and educational levels representing diverse traditions in research and education. And finally, the fourth conference was hosted by Ravensbourne University London in 2017. The Fifth International Conference for Design Education Researchers will be hosted by Middle East Technical University (METU) Department of Industrial Design between 9-12 July 2019. We are truly excited to invite you all to our Ankara campus characterized by its unique natural and built environment as well as by its egalitarian culture and open intellectual milieu. Despite Turkey’s becoming an uneasy passage from multiple conflict zones to tightened EU borders, our department will have quite a few occasions to celebrate in the coming year. The year 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first course on industrial design offered in Turkey, at METU Faculty of Architecture by the American industrial designer David K. Munro. The same year we will also be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the establishment of our department as a separate academic unit at METU. We feel that design education matters more than ever!
  8. Hi everyone, I've initiated a series of book projects and am looking for some objective advice and constructive criticism – or otherwise, some sort of review or mentorship – that could also result in some request for contributing articles, interviews, and case studies. The book projects are framed academically and progress knowledge and research (my own and others) in the domain of municipal/community branding and storytelling. The composition of the books will largely be 50% logo inventory, 15% interviews, 15% articles, and 20% case studies – depending on the length of each book, of which there will be one for each state in the US, plus 2-3 after that would (respectively) collect all of the interviews, articles, and case studies together. I'm looking to do all of this over the next 5-year period. I am planning on self-publishing, have financing lined up, and am now in the content building phase. I do hope to have two additional books that collect all of the articles and interviews and case studies (respectively) published on a peer-review basis, as I don't think the 50 books I want to do will fit that mold. I welcome any advice, opinions, insights, or further conversations. Thanks!
  9. https://ead2019dundee.com/ Design and design researchers often disrupt the status quo in acts of creative disobedience, taking a contrary view to shed new light on a challenge.

  10. Ahttp://www.collegeart.org/pdf/programs/conference/CAA-CFP-2019.pdf There are a few noteworthy design sessions. Please consider submitting or recommending someone to submit. (If you note other design sessions in this conference, please list them in the comments to this discussion...) Where Industry Meets Academia: Who is Leading the Pack in Design Research and Why? Committee on Design Chair: Dan Wong Email: dan@dan-wong.com Is industry making the greatest contribution and impact to design, or is research in the academy doing it behind the scenes? Is it time for more PhD programs in design? This panel discussion will span design disciplines. We invite academic design researchers, design practitioners, agency principals, and design entrepreneurs to participate in this discussion of the investment in design research and the establishment of contemporary design thinking, methodologies, and technologies. Human-centered Design Research Chair: Audrey Bennett - Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Email: audreygbennett@gmail.com Today, there are a plethora of challenges in the world that deserve the attention and, more importantly, the expertise of designers. These global challenges tend to be complex in that they may traverse intellectual, ethnic, political, economic, gender, age, geographic, and other cultural boundaries and, thus, require input from different stakeholders. To address these cross-cultural complexities, the discipline of design provides research methods for collaboration along with technological resources that enable aesthetics to engender interaction between humans and things in unprecedented ways that have the potential to improve our wellbeing; but, may, at times, merely fumble our everyday experiences. We welcome papers that tout the successes and failures of human-centered design as well as those thatreport findings from collaborative research in academia and industry. As an open session, the intellectual scope will comprise an eclectic mix of topics that will range from design thinking, disruptive and intervention design, speculative design, decolonization,inclusive design, social justice, equity, universal design, human-computer interaction, urban design, generative design, meaningful play, systems thinking, sustainability, usability, social innovation, creativity, aesthetics, to visualization. Design Incubation Colloquium 5.2: CAA Conference 2019 New York City Design Incubation Chair: Robin Landa Chair: Elizabeth DeLuna Email: rlanda@kean.edu, delunae@stjohns.edu Presentations of original Communication Design research, including significant creative works, the practice of design, case studies, contemporary practices, and the scholarly review of design projects.

  20. http://carnegieclassifications.iu.edu/classification_descriptions/basic.php I'm fascinated by the research expectations across institutions. One factor I've seen is the program offerings of a given institution. Another factor, particularly in our field of communication design, is the ability to do creative work or client work locally. Are there other factors? I also wonder whether the Carnegie classifications are a good guide to what an institution research expectations are of you during your tenure. How does the Carnegie classifications rate your school, and what are your research expectations?
  21. As the field of communication design changes and develops, research as a rigorous element of the process becomes required. At the Design Incubation Colloquium at Kent State, faculty there discussed how they introduced a research course in their graduate program, and then brought it into the undergraduate program. I’ve been intrigued since they first mentioned it... how is it taught? What are the lectures, lessons, assignments and outcomes? Do you teach a research course in your program?
