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.
