Educating Ethical Designers
Haug, Anders
International Journal of Technology and Design Education, v27 n4 p655-665 Dec 2017
In recent years, there has been an increased focus on bringing sustainability into design education. The focus of such education, however, mainly concerns providing design students with the knowledge and skills needed to create sustainable design, which, so this paper argues, may not be enough. Thus, with a basis in Aristotelian virtue ethics, this paper shows that sustainable design education may apply a broader perspective by also focussing on how to stimulate design students' desire to create sustainable solutions as well as providing them with the means to engage others in such ideas. As compared to the identified literature, the present paper represents a novel perspective on sustainability in design education that may constitute a basis for further discussions and educational developments.
