Call for Stories on the Transformation of Education through Design is NOW open!

 

Educators,

Do you have an interesting story about how design helped you address challenges and create new solutions for students and schools? For example, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused school closures worldwide and has now affected more than 1.5 billion students globally. Are there stories you would like to share about how you used design to reimagine education during and post-pandemic?

Students,

Tell us about how you and your school changed because of a design or innovation project. What about the COVID-19 virus pandemic? How has it affected your learning and what did you or your school do to adapt?

 

WHAT IS THE CALL FOR STORIES ABOUT?

This call is a lead up to the 2nd Design Education Summit, organised by the DesignSingapore Council, in partnership with the SUTD-MIT International Design Centre, SUTD. The Summit will be held in Singapore. We will announce the date of the event as soon as we can.
