Teachers have to act more and more as catalysts between students and their environment, by linking the two of them and generating a synergy in real situations. Professors are now teaching systems, networks and working environments design, in addition to “visual” design.
These kinds of activity act as a platform for the exchange of ideas, projects and training models related to design, through dynamic and multi-conference working groups, leading to ensuing discussion. Among these groups, which are organized around the thematic areas of the 2017 edition, elements such as facts, educational and/or classroom experiences are used as new ways of teaching innovation: curricula and corresponding professional profiles; training models based on the development of professional skills; training models based on entrepreneurial management; graduates’ profiles, the industry and society´s needs.
An admission committee will consider and select the presentations that teachers, students, postgraduates, doctorates, researches, institutions and companies may submit by registering online.
