What does it mean to take responsibility when thinking like designers? What does Responsible Design Thinking look like? Join us for an exciting and dynamic gathering of practitioners, educators and researchers from the University of Sydney and Monash University to explore this question. 

Through a series of presentations, collaborative design workshops and discussions, we will combine knowledge from practice and research alongside our lived experiences as educators and learners to engage with issues around design criticality, ethics, and the environment. Your presence at this symposium will greatly enrich our discussions and collective exploration of what Responsible Design Thinking looks like in education.

This symposium is inspired by a positioning paper by Dr. Ilya Fridman, Dr. Yaron Meronand, Dr. Julie Roberts, published in the Journal of Design, Business, and Society and also the work of Howard Munroe and Dr. Desiree Ibinarriaga, which explores the concept of ‘Indigenising Design: The Seven Grandfathers’ Teachings as a Design Methodology,’ as published in The Design Journal.
