After the Big Bang: What's Next in Design Education? Time to Relax?
Fleischmann, Katja
Journal of Learning Design, v8 n3 p123-142 2015
The article "Big Bang technology: What's next in design education, radical innovation or incremental change?" (Fleischmann, 2013) appeared in the "Journal of Learning Design" Volume 6, Issue 3 in 2013. Two years on, Associate Professor Fleischmann reflects upon her original article within this article. Although it has only been two years since she wrote the article, in that brief time, technology has continued to drive change in how design is practised, produced, accessed, traded, taught, and learned. The author has continued to adjust her media design curriculum with small modifications and, where warranted, radical changes. In two years, the application of the learning and teaching approach she devised and described to manage the increasing complexity of technology in media design education has stopped, but research into sustainability of new learning and teaching models has started and the implementation of the first fully online media design degree has begun. This article is a reflection upon that original article. The article as it appeared in 2013 is also presented. With the author's approval, minor edits have been made, the referencing and other conventions updated to APA 6.0.
