  • European Driving Range – Innovative Landscapes for a Tangible, Non-hierarchical Learning Space Within a Material and Immaterial Togetherness

Marina, Wachs and Hall, Ashley, 2019, Conference or Workshop, European Driving Range – Innovative Landscapes for a Tangible, Non-hierarchical Learning Space Within a Material and Immaterial Togetherness at Engineering and Product Design Education 2019, Glasgow, Scotland, September 12th-13th 2019.

Abstract or Description:

The 21st century global scale challenges facing design include sustainability, migration, food, water and data security and terrorism amongst others. These challenges have left 20th century design approaches lagging behind, while we also now recognise that the ‘western’ design model is limited. As geopolitical changes accelerate in Europe, new opportunities and challenges are emerging in collaborating for a profitable “togetherness”. The demand for high value designed products created across the future European landscape will require new educational talents working seamlessly across integrated analogue and digital platforms while responding to evolving cultural needs emerging through new consumer behaviours. With the help of a differentiated design landscape we are developing the capabilities to meet the future needs of innovation and design engineering opportunities in the 4th industrial revolution including: new standards in the digitalized learning landscape, new design methods for cross cultural creativity and understanding, higher levels of integration between qualitative and quantitative approaches in design-engineering, redefining borders of design collaboration, engineering creativity, knowledge sharing in non-hierarchical cross-cultural learning and differentiated analogue and digital education skill bases in a connected European learning landscape for increasing creative diversity. The ‘European Designer Driving Range’ explores a concept that gives us the possibility to reflect on the needs for tomorrow from a pan-European perspective. We aim to identify the key drivers for a collaborative European non-hierarchical learning landscape and explore how these could be engaged through a future platform.
