Abstract [en]

‘How can we design a meaningful and relevant research platform that will support futures of sustainability?’ was the question guiding the two-and-a-half-year- long, co-creative and emergent metadesign process of establishing a new research platform at the Department of Design, Linnaeus University, Sweden. The meta focus on developing a whole research environment, as a design practice and design research endeavour, should be valuable for the design research community. Findings concern the viability of co-creative approaches in such a remit, negotiations of artistic/scientific research conventions, and the design institution’s position in the multi-disciplined university. The research has identified tensions and conflicts between the academic institution and construct, and the application of ontologies, epistemologies and methodologies deemed auspicious for sustainability endeavours. The paper itself is a collaborative effort between eleven of the researchers involved in developing the research platform.

Abstract [en]

We live in a global and digital world with many inhabitants on the move, far away from their homes, friends and loved ones. Family and friends have always gathered for mourning and support, graves have been taken care of in generations. But today it´s hard to take care of a grave far away and for many, death has become remote. My interest as a graphic designer focuses on the role of typography and graphic design in mourning; typical manifestations being the traditional inscriptions in stone on cemeteries. I started exploring the possibility of typography and graphic design supporting preparation for loss and mourning in a contemporary and future context of lives that are carried out across several places. I also wanted to enquire whether typography and graphic design could promote the ability to talk about death and loss in everyday life. This ongoing project has its base in the region of Småland, Sweden; with a small study also conducted in Hong Kong. The aims of the project are twofold: 1. To explore how design can help humans prepare for loss; 2. To explore how designers and mourners can design the funerals of the future with dignity and respect. Preparing for loss is vital not only in personal bereavement of loved ones, but also as we face unprecedented challenges to humanity, climate change, migrations – and loss of life as we know it.

Abstract [en]

Why and how do you start a new contemporary design education? A design department in Sweden describe their process of building a new education for social change. Ups and downs are part of the process leading to several conclusions. The most important one is that if your university's strategy documents talk about social responsibility and internationalization, incorporate this strategy in the new education. Your university management may be rather surprised that you actually do what they pro- pose, but the most important aspect is that you will acquire their support.

Abstract [en]

Teaching sustainability is not solely a question of providing relevant information; it is foremost about training students to meet the challenges of tomorrow. In design this can mean to shift the focus from material, form and function towards systems, correlation and time – a process supported both by how we teach as well as what we teach. But pedagogy still seems to be treated like a poor cousin to the more important design knowledge. This  made us curious about the correlation between pedagogy and teaching design for sustainable change.

By applying a study of Eilam and Trop (2011) onto the curriculum of an undergraduate design programme and through interviews with students we investigated the underlying pedagogy. Eilam and Trop had identified four pedagogical components that supported a holistic learning experience in their study.

It proves more fruitful to incorporate sustainability wholeheartedly in a programme, instead of teaching it as a separate course. Pedagogies like emotional learning in realistic design projects and multidimensional learning in theoretical courses support an education for sustainable change and prepare students to meet the challenges of tomorrow without missing their professional  development.
