Design Integrations calls for an innovative rethinking of design education, one that recognizes the changing modes of design and the shifting forms of user experience. The contributors urge new methods of approach that focus on interdisciplinary collaboration between the academic and business worlds. These essays, among the first to focus on the future of design, often in-depth explorations of inter-institutional projects, cross-cultural learning experiences, and a multinational healthcare project. Design Integrations will be of interest to design teachers and practitioners alike.
