Cumulus + IxDA Workshop

In 2017, at the Montreal World Design Summit, Cumulus Association and IxDA signed a partnership to share knowledge and network in furthering interaction design education.

Call for Participation “101 guide to Interaction Design Education for the next decade”

IxDA, the international professional association for Interaction design and Cumulus International Association for Art, Design & Media education are joining forces for a series of shared workshops about the future of interaction design education.

The goal

It’s 2018 and it’s getting complicated. Software is eating the world, digital culture is everywhere in our hands as a darker side of digital tech is emerging as a public issue. Every business sector, every part of the society is impacted and so is design education. New challenges are ahead of us with Artificial Intelligence & robotics, and it’s probably time to redefine what should be interaction design education for the next decade.

The game

IxDA and Cumulus are organising two workshops in France during the 1st part of the year 2018 in order to enable design practitioners and design educators to share views and opinions. Vision, best practices and ambition for design education would be the content and the outcomes of those two workshops. Each workshop gathers 15 participants from IxDA, 15 participants from Cumulus.

Part 1: Interaction Design Education Summit - Lyon (France) Feb. 3-4

Workshop happening on Sunday 4th at 1 pm.
