AECT GSA and DD Present: What is design?

Meeting Description:
Design is a broad concept that holds different meanings for different people. Author and designer Victor Papanek (1985) defines design as “the conscious and intuitive effort to impose meaningful order” (p.4) This can mean that whether we are involved in instructional design, or in other endeavors in which something is to be created different than what existed before; “all that we do, almost all the time, is design, for design is basic to all human activity” (Papanek, 1985, pg. 4).
As an interactive multimedia designer, Elizabeth Boling, MFA, Associate Professor of Education and Associate Dean for Graduate Studies at Indiana University has published and presented widely on the topic of Instructional design as design endeavor and on the subject of teaching design. In this webinar, Dr. Boling, fellow AECT instructional designers and graduate students will discuss the concept and practice of design and the characteristics that instructional design shares broadly with other design enterprises.
