HUB Incubator, City Walk, United Arab Emirates

Event Description

A rare opportunity for educators to come together to discuss design education in the context of the UAE. Away from a formal conference setting, the ‘Power Breakfast’ morning will present a series of themes around practices, research, and pedagogies to be discussed openly and informally. By bring together perspectives from different education curricular and design backgrounds, this will open interesting debates, rich discussions, and future possibilities between us. See this as an opportunity to network, open collaborations, or an opportunity to put something on the table to be discussed that might contribute to your own research.

The list of themes up for discussion.

The Design Studio
The studio was the setting where skills and mentalities were elaborated and established, are there new learning patterns today that need better consideration?

Assessment criteria, rubrics or learning outcomes are systems of measuring a student’s achievement, what are the current best practices?

There have been radical shifts in the role of different technologies, and they are often seen as a solution, rather than a tool to work with.

Research contributions are highly valued by academic institutions globally; indeed, they are part of annual faculty appraisals and there is a real pressure to produce but what is design research?

To contribute to the conclusions addressed above there will be an opportunity to discuss with the design industry, the theme of employability expectations and the core skills of graduate students.
