ICOGRADA World Design Education Conference

October 26th, 2009

In a few days time, I’ll be going to present at the ICOGRADA World Design Education Conference in Beijing. You can find out more about the speakers and the presentation on the conference blog. The paper (which was jointly written by Emma Jefferies and Kath McKelvey) focuses on the development of teaching tools to foster collaborative learning. These teaching tools are available on the Design Collaboration website and I will be talking about how the tools were developed and discuss 5 tools specifically. The website also contains case studies of student project involving industry partners. I’m very excited as this presentation will be the ’official’ launch of the website to an international audience. I hope it will be well-received!
