What role will design education play in the future, in light of recent changes in the design industry? Are we currently educating students to be artists and researchers? How do national differences in governmental funding for higher education in the EU impact educational programs? Is there still a value in learning to be a maker? As well as addressing broader question regarding design and crafts education, our invited speakers will also raise questions about the value of hands-on making, making as a way of learning and design and crafts education as a critical context for making.
