Introduction to design theory for PhD students

The Design Theory Tutorial goal is to provide relevant, inspiring and actionable knowledge to researchers looking to increase their knowledge and competencies in Design Theory.

The Tutorial is organized by the SIG Design Theory of The Design Society with the support of the chair Design Theory and Methods for Innovation of MINES ParisTech. Target audience is scholars, especially PhD students, who are interested in research topics related to design theory. All professors of the tutorial are international researchers from leading labs working on Design Theory (Carnegie Mellon University, Tel Aviv University, Otto-von-Guericke University, ORT Braude College, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Pennsylvania State University, James Madison University, MINES ParisTech, etc.)

The objectives of Design Theory Tutorial are:

• To learn some of the foundational models used in design theory and research, their relationship and the historical context within which they were proposed

• To develop skills in applying a variety of design methods in various situations for different purposes – including for research,

• To interact with and learn from specialist researchers in the field to develop and refine their own research questions and to build future collaboration opportunities.

To participate to the tutorial day, please send us a short summary of no more than two pages on your PhD project. We will accept the participation requests based on limited available capacity.

NOTE: Senior scholars are also warmly welcome – please send a short note of now more than two pages on your research program and the reasons for your interest in attending the tutorial.
