Activity: Talk or presentation typesConference presentation


This session looks at the potential for economics to be incorporated in design education. Based on our experiences as designers, researchers, educators and students, we will discuss questions such as: How is economics currently reflected in design education, if at all? What subjects and skills related to economics are important for design students to learn? What would the economics-savvy design graduate of the future look like? What super powers would they have? Participants are welcome to contribute new questions and help us answer them.
