Duell, Christian; Wright, Natalie; Roxburgh, Joanna – Design and Technology Education, 2014
Education in the 21st century demands a model for understanding a new culture of learning in the face of rapid change, open access data and geographical diversity. Teachers no longer need to provide the latest information because students themselves are taking an active role in peer collectives to help create it. This paper examines, through an…

Taboada, Manuela; Coombs, Gretchen – Design and Technology Education, 2014
This paper provides a contextual reflection for understanding best practice teaching to first year design students. The outcome (job) focussed approach to higher education has led to some unanticipated collateral damage for students, and in the case we discuss, has altered the students' expectations of course delivery with specific implications…

Lofthouse, Vicky – Design and Technology Education, 2013
Sustainable design education is now considered a core issue for industrial/product design courses, however research has shown that the predominant focus tends to be on environmental issues, as social issues are much harder to tackle. Similarly, social issues are rarely considered in industrial practice. If student designers are to become…
