Design education; At the cross roads of different disciplines

Tully, R. (2013) Design education; At the cross roads of different disciplines. [Conference Proceedings]


Design and design education sit at the junction of a number of different disciplines. The development and delivery of appropriate educational interventions requires effective collaboration between these disciplines. Appreciating and understanding discipline differences and commonalities is a significant enabler of cross-discipline collaboration. Each discipline evolves its own culture and practices. This paper explores the experience of integrating different discipline cultures on a new cross-disciplinary undergraduate BSc. in Product Design at the Dublin Institute of Technology and considers the impact of this integration on the on-going development and delivery of the program. By considering and presenting these experiences on a particular educational intervention this paper seeks to contribute to an on-going discourse relating to cross-disciplinary program and curriculum development.
