The identities of design disciplines

How do we perceive ourselves as learners, teachers and practitioners?

Where does ‘design’ as a discipline start and finish: do we know? Is defined by the notion of physical making? Or rather by the concepts and ideas that apparently fire the design process? Is the design discipline shaped by the external needs and demands of industry, or by its own nimble ability to work with and across the boundaries of other disciplines? Questions of identity are important in design, particularly for those teaching, learning and researching through design. Whether intentionally, or as an unanticipated result of their research, several CETLD projects produced questions, insights or findings about this theme.
