Establishing Design Literacy International Network
The aims of the workshop where threefold:
- a) establish an international network on Design Literacy,
- b) articulate how network membership might support personal goals,
- 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?
