The following activities are planned to be carried out during the research process:

  1. Development of the practice-based design research framework
    • For building the theoretical foundation for the research project we develop a research framework which bridges design processes from design practice, with the theorising of the concept of reconfiguration from design practice, which can be found in Ambiguity (Gaver, Beaver, & Benford, 2003), Boundary objects (Carlile, 2004; Star & Griesemer, 1989), und Affordances (Gibson, 2015). This research framework will guide the study.
  2. Exploration and design of design methods through practice-based workshops.
    • Based on the (in the framework development) identified design process approaches in design practice, we invite design practitioners to work with design students and to explore and design the collaborative methods with them.
  3. Exploration and design of design methods through reflective conversation with design practitioners, design researchers, and design educators
    • Through reflective conversations with design practitioners, design researchers, and design educators are adding additional viewpoints and input from other sites of practice, research, and education.
  4. Live research platform and dissemination
    • This website functions as a live research lab and dissemination platform. It will contain a description of the research study, its theoretical framework, and it will be updated with new content in an ongoing manner through all contributors.
