3. Course contents *

The International Design Workshop week is an international event consisting of workshops and lectures around a socially relevant theme. 'React by design' occupies a central position: students are challenged to step outside their comfort zone and adopt a critical attitude to prevailing views in the domain. The conceptual and shaping ability of the student is developed from a work process that radically differs from regular courses both in space and in time, in methodology and in perspective. Several workshops will be organized by national and international guest lecturers who occupy a distinct position within the chosen theme. Based on abstracts, students choose one of the workshops and commit themselves for a week of intensive research and design in group . The groups cut across educational programs with the aim to familiarize students with an interdisciplinary approach to design research. Students work on continuous output throughout the week (instant publishing) and towards a final product exhibited at a closing event.
