CONTEXT - Contemporary (graphic) design practice is attempting to reformulate itself in the face of changing conditions and a rapidly shifting communication landscape. At the same time Higher Education in the UK is undergoing a transformational change that will have a significant impact on student expectations and institutional demands. In the face of these challenges there has never been a better time to ask: how should graphic design education respond and reshape in order to be relevant in the 21st century.

THE WORKSHOP - The workshop will be framed as a 7-hour design project: to redesign (graphic) design education for the 21st century. Working in teams comprised of students and tutors participants will create a series of proposals or models for a new kind of design education. Using a structured design thinking process participants will be encouraged to examine what might be retained and what should be jettisoned from current practices. At the centre of this process will be 4 ‘provocations’ from leading graphic design practitioners** and academics** delivered at strategic points throughout the day to help prompt an expansive and creative approach to the project. The day will culminate with all of the participants presenting their ideas to the provocateurs.

It is intended that the day will be energetic, participatory and engaging and that participants will leave with new ideas, networks and having shared a forum for critical discussions around design education. We are also particularly interested to see the impact of student’s involvement in the workshop.
