CfP: Education, Design and Practice – Understanding skills in a Complex World. New York / New Jersey, 17-19 June 2019

Call for Papers: Education, Design and Practice – Understanding skills in a Complex World. New York / New Jersey, 17-19 June 2019

Stevens Institute of Technology + AMPS

This unique conference is interested in how we prepare the next generation of professionals to design, construct and manage the built environment. It seeks papers on teaching and learning in various sectors:
Education and Pedagogy | Architecture, Urbanism and Landscape | Business and Management | Construction and Engineering
The relationship between education and practice in any discipline is complex. In an ever changing world, it is also in flux. Today, educators in the liberal arts still identify learning as an end unto itself, and designers still draw on ideas about intuitive knowledge. By contrast, business calls for graduates armed with the skills required in industry from day one. At the same time, they value creative thinking and continual adaptation. The Education, Design and Practice conference explores this complex and contradictory scenario from multiple perspectives, seeking examples best practice teaching and critique.
Abstract Submissions: 1 December 2018.
The full call for papers with the abstract submission form is available here.
This event is organized by Stevens Institute of Technology with the research organization AMPS.
The conference publications form part of an international publishing network PARADE involving Routledge Taylor&Francis, Intellect Books, UCL Press, Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Vernon Press and Libri Publishing.
