Updating Values. Perspectives on Design Education
includes the proceedings of the International Symposium
Updating Values – FutureDesignEd 2020 held in
San Marino on January 16-17, 2020.
FutureDesignEd is an academic research project promoted by the University of Bologna Design Programmes, the aim of which is to observe the ongoing transformation of design education through the involvement of a community of international observers. The volume aims to further the discourse on “educational values” in the field of design. From Piero Formica’s “creative ignorance” to Alice Twemlow’s reflection upon the “human, post-human, and more-than-human”, from Audrey G. Bennett’s educational model to Juan Salamanca’s framework of responsible innovation, a plurality of different viewpoints emerges.
All of them converged in the Manifesto of Updating Values – FutureDesignEd 2020, which identifies twelve values we believe are the core of design and design education, the cornerstones of a lifelong process of learning and personal and professional growth: aware of the past, open to the future, and engaged with the world.
