Design Literacy


The aims of the workshop where threefold:

  1. a) establish an international network on Design Literacy,
  2. b) articulate how network membership might support personal goals,
  3. c) share information regarding how the participants might contribute into the network in terms of research expertise, funding, networks.

The workshop gathered a group of 21 international scholars who were interested in exploring the emerging area of the Design Literacy. Production and consumption are very much tight around human designed and made systems – how can citizens become aware of their vital role in shaping the world and support a better tomorrow for both people and planet? How does the uptake of design literacies evolve across diverse field of education (both universities and K12), policy development and commercial organisations?
