Our main theme at the Oslo HIOA meeting will be how we as design schools balance between “analogue” and “digital” teaching in our curricula.The overall theme also raises parallel perspectives like; “Physical” versus “Virtual”, “New” versus “Old” or “Crafts” versus “Automation”. The theme will be covered in the leaders meetings as well as in the teachers in workshops. We will have both practical workshops and discussion workshops. More specifically, we present subjects like:

  • 3D clay printing, how to teach students to learn – with 3D printing as a pedagogical tool.

  • We wish to discuss digital strategies for learning; additive and subtractive design processes (wood, metal, and textile)

  • Our department is active in the field of design for health – for instance covering subjects like; how art theory in haptics meets orthopedic technology and how design can improve everyday lives of the chronically ill.

  • Workshops will be announced and thoroughly described in the first half of January 2018.”
