  1. 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. New approaches to design education and pedagogy will also be discussed. We invite designers—practitioners and educators—to submit abstracts of design research. Presentations are limited to 6 minutes, preferably Pecha Kucha style. A moderated discussion of the research will follow. (Please submit to Design Incubation Colloquium session via the DI website form, at https://designincubation.com/call-for-submissions/.) The deadline to submit your proposal is August 6th 2017. Please follow the guidelines here: http://www.collegeart.org/pdf/programs/conference/CAA-CFP-2019.pdf. Proposals (including a title and 250 words maximum) should be sent to chairs directly. Please note that a current CAA: Advancing Art and Design membership is required to participate in the conference. However, If you are not a member of CAA at the time you submit the proposal, you can still submit—email CAA Membership Services at membership@collegeart.org or call them directly at 212-392-4430 and they can create a temporary CAA account number so that you can move forward with your submission. Please see the following list of FAQ for more information: http://www.collegeart.org/programs/conference/FAQ
  2. Design researchers, academics, and practitioners almost always have a website or blog that showcases their work, insights, activities, or research... In many cases, they might look like teaching or academic research blogs, but often they look like design company/firm/agency websites. Please share those go-to websites you visit regularly, or your own design research website.
  3. https://www.designresearchsociety.org/cpages/home The Design Research Society (DRS) is a learned society committed to promoting and developing design research. It is the longest established, multi-disciplinary worldwide society for the design research community. The Design Research Society was founded in the UK in 1966. The origins of the Society lie in the Conference on Design Methods, held in London in 1962, which enabled a core of people to be identified who shared interests in new approaches to the process of designing.
  4. http://designresearchmethods.com/ This site is a repository of design research methods, organized into sets of books, tools, organizations, practice, and articles. Creating a central hub of materials was motivated by the growing abundance of resources that has emerged in recent years. The site was developed and is managed by Bruce Hanington, Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University, and co-author of Universal Methods of Design. Special thanks to Lisa Li for help with initial content research and site development.
  5. In many cases, Design is within an Art and Design department. Some might think the grass is greener and maybe having their own Design department or being part of a different department might have advantages. I like to hear good and bad examples of Design moving. This isn't a discussion on the value of Art in Design, that will always be there. I am looking for more result based stories of design in academic structure.

  7. 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?
  8. https://educators.aiga.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/DESIGNER-2025-SUMMARY.pdf Here's a really great white paper put out by AIGA DEC on thinking about the direction of design, design thinking, and design education, looking out to 2025. A must-read for serious educators.
