Redesigning Design Education: Four Teaching Actions Facing the Challenges of the 21st Century

Miguel Angel Herrera Batista [2] | Marco Antonio Marin Alvarez

Abstract: There have been over 100 years since the founding in Weimar, Germany, of the Bauhaus school of design, architecture, and applied arts. The advance of industrial society and other world events that occurred at that time influenced the way of understanding and practicing design. From then on, a clear link was established between the discipline and the industrial and economic production system based on commercial competition. However, society has undergone profound changes during that time. The advance towards post - industrial society, the technological revolution, added to many other factors, have drastically transformed social reality. As of today, rethink and restate design education is needed in order to face of the new reality and new challenges. Starting from the evident differences between the society that saw the birth of design as an academic discipline and today's society, four lines of action are presented to reorient design education. It is proposed to configure a designer profile that is no longer a player, but a transformer of the system, a true agent of change. These proposals arise from a theoretical research process where the analysis, synthesis, criticism and conceptual re - elaboration were carried out based on various documentary and information sources, as well as academic publications and their own experience as design teachers. The objective of this research is to determine the priority educational actions to reorient the practice of design, transform teaching to transmute professional practice.
