Increasing Focus on Vulnerable Generations in Design Teaching: the DEVICE Project
Poster (konferens), 2013
The DEVICE project aspires to bridge traditional industrial design programs with ergonomics, usability concepts and user experience approaches with a specific focus on vulnerable generations.
It intends to address the need to modernize and develop educational programs with a specific focus on vulnerable generations, mainly children and elderly, and to become a milestone towards the modernization of design education.
To improve the design practice in the area of design for children, it is necessary not only to study and improve methodology, but also to transfer the gained knowledge to new generations of designers in order to ensure its use in design. We wish to contribute to the community by bringing up the discussion on how to transform our knowledge and teach how to design for children.
