Design Issues

Meet our staffDesign Issues research is typified by investigations that aim to address complex and interdependent issues; where problems are not isolated to any one particular sector or discipline and can be characterised as emergent phenomena with non-linear uncertainties. Academics in this area examine the discipline of design in an era of globalisation, increasing digitalisation, and conceptual, methodological and professional boundary blurring, how design can create interventions to manage chronic medical conditions in rural locations, and how creativity and innovation is facilitated across different contexts. Academics in this area also investigate how 'mindfulness meditation' can be used for improving the quality of reflective design practice. Members of this cluster also explore linking learning to inspiration, imagination and social cohesion in the museum and in the university. Practice-based work uses practice-based design methods to address social concerns.
