For those of you in the colonies willing to make the jump "across the pond" this summer, DESIGN-ED is promoting a unique experience that is a follow-up to our highly feted Learn x Design 2015 international design conference that took place in Chicago. Sponsored by Design Research Society, CUMULUS and Ravensbourne University, LxD 2017: The Allure of the Digital and Beyond brings together researchers and practitioners from a wide variety of higher education design settings with the intention of connecting emergent models and ideas around the digital, with the scholarship of teaching and learning. The Conference will be held in London at Ravensbourne on the Greenwich Peninsula.
As educators, we look to issues beyond the attraction of the digital in learning: other ways of acting, knowing and becoming in design – in the full range of educational settings from kindergarten to PhD.
Student’s learning approaches demand creative solutions to a wide range of complex themes and contexts. We welcome debates on the scope of learner literacies and studies that investigate how formal and informal learning can be synergized.
Dialogues that address new cultures of learning, issues of learner identities, tutor roles, space and their implications in the design of learning environments are also encouraged. In this context the digital imbues all such practices. This will be the core of this conference.
