Teaching Design started as a collectively gathered bibliography focusing on design education from intersectional feminist and decolonial perspectives.

Since its launch in September 2019, it has expanded into conversational formats, workshops, a temporary library and a space for reflections, which all has led to the platform in its current form. We invite you – design educators, students, alumni, faculty staff and everyone interested in the field – to share your experiences, doubts, questions, knowledge, concepts, methods and references, and to connect, reflect and learn collectively. As a participative format, Teaching Design is constantly in transition, welcoming proposals for collaborations of any kind.

In which ways is design (education) involved in the reproduction of discriminatory structures such as sexism, racism, ableism and classism? What mechanisms are involved? How can these be interrupted? Who and what is being excluded from the dominant discourses in design? What about digital teaching?
Teachers, Students and enthusiasts, how do you practice transformative pedagogy in your specific context? Which difficulties do you face? What motivates you? How can we care for each other while teaching design online?

Teaching Design aims to collect resources that could function as reference points and/or inspiration to you in your practice. Feel free to share your resources with us. They will be published on our Instagram account and in our text-based bibliography.
