Teaching Design

Collectively gathered bibliography & conversational formats focusing on design education from intersectional feminist & decolonial perspectives.

there are way more design schools and design educators than the few well-established ones that mainstream design blogs, mags and events give a platform to. What are the less known design schools doing? Who else is teaching next to the “poster child” designers? What and how are you teaching? And why in this way?

We started a platform
Teaching Design is a platform and a conversational format for design educators – such as ourselves –  and everyone interested in the field to share their experiences, doubts, questions, knowledge, concepts, methods and references, and to connect with one another. Teaching Design focuses on the basic and introduction courses and approaches design pedagogy from a decolonial* and intersectional feminist perspective**. We aim to get together and connect with like-minded educators to transform current structures.

Come join us!
We are by far not the first ones to speak about design education. Teaching Design aims to collect sources that are reference points and/or inspiration to you in your work – either from the design field directly, or from others. We invite you to share your sources which will be represented on the Instagram account of Teaching Design through photos and short texts. These collectively gathered sources serve as the backdrop against which the real-life Teaching Design formats will unfold – bringing together design educators to exchange, reflect and learn.
