The design process is a common and essential form of thinking, learning, teaching and research at art and design schools. This is nowadays determined by digital collaboration and communication processes, which lead to new requirements and didactical implications for teaching and learning in higher education.

How can collaborative project based design processes be supported and accompanied by digital learning scenarios at the university? What are the challenges, what are the experiences? Which influence do they have on the competency profiles of graduates? How can inter- or transdisciplinary design processes be conducted in digital learning environments?

These and other questions will be addressed during the conference. The aim is to get an insight into the current digital design-based teaching and learning practice. We will discover new ideas and perspectives, discuss and, at best, design them together.

All presentations will be given in German language.
