Towards a design community: Teaching collaborative practice in design education

KELLY Veronika

Design as a collaborative process of active participation and design as a commercial service can be observed in relation to the concepts of information and persuasion. This paper examines these relationships in developing a model for collaborative practice in visual communication design education. This is based on the idea that effective collaboration and teamwork in design education extends the boundaries of learners’ creative and professional practice. In turn this has the potential to contribute to the development of active, socially responsible designers and the formation of a broader design community.
