CONNECT: Nurturing systems awareness within design teaching and learning

Amidst compelling UAL Climate, Racial & Social Justice imperatives, this workshop will engage participants in a sequence of individual and group activities that imagine and connect ways to ‘cultivate systems thinking and practices’ within design teaching and learning. This workshop stems from wider research being undertaken into a system of T&L interventions that positively disrupt the curriculum, to catalyse and reinforce learning around design action and eco-social consequence. As such, this session seeks to introduce key principles and to invite participants to explore opportunities and mechanisms for increasing systems awareness and nurturing responsible attitudes within art and design education.
