Book cover by Springer 'Design Education Across Disciplines: Transformative Learning Experiences for the 21st Century'

This book explores how design thinking can transform higher education, with solutions ranging from single course sessions to whole programs and universities. The authors demonstrate how designing across disciplines is done, with disruptive technologies, ambiguity and challenges as catalysts. Iteratively tested pedagogies, design-driven solutions and creative uses of both tactile and digital worlds are among the approaches discussed. 

Educators and leaders of higher education institutes as well as designers and managers of companies will benefit from engaging the design ideas in their own work.
