Call for Papers — Mudd Design Workshop VIII
"Design Education: Innovation and Entrepreneurship"
Harvey Mudd College, 26–28 May 2011
Center for Design Education
Harvey Mudd College
Claremont, California, USA
To bring together 50–75 engineering designers, educators, and researchers to articulate how innovation and entrepreneurship affect design education and how, in turn, design education can be more innovative and entrepreneurial.
To articulate educational, institutional and cultural issues in innovation and entrepreneurship in design that engineering design educators should address, including:
- designing and implementing innovative curricula
- innovative cornerstone design projects
- innovative capstone design projects
- ethical and cultural dimensions of innovation
- multi-disciplinary innovative design
- perceptions of innovation in art and music
- creating an innovative design workforce
- failure and disaster stimulating innovation
- entrepreneurial capstone design projects
Each session will start with brief talks by panelists, to be followed by open discussion. A wrap-up session will collect the most important outputs for improving engineering design education for dissemination to the community. Participants will receive a preliminary proceedings CD containing near-final manuscripts of presented papers. Those drafts will subsequently be refined and reviewed for publication in a Special Issue of the International Journal of Engineering Education to comprise the archival proceedings of MDW VIII.
Two-page abstracts to be submitted by 31 January 2011
Authors notified of acceptance by 28 February 2011
Final Workshop papers to be submitted by 15 April 2011
