What does it mean to learn about design through the study of objects?
Objects Matter: Design Education and Learning through Objects in the Museum is a one-day workshop focusing on object handling in design education. The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts in design education, museum learning, design history, contextual studies, and design pedagogy to explore the ways in which objects can be employed as important tools for learning and teaching design and contextual studies in Higher and Further Education.
Through a series of talks and a round-table discussion, the workshop will explore ideas, as well as provide opportunities for practical knowledge-sharing and skills development for tutors.
This event is co-organised by Design History Society, The Design Museum and Council for Higher Education in Art and Design (CHEAD).
Venue: Design Museum, 224-238 Kensington High St, Kensington, London W8 6AG
