Exchange is the theme of the 2016 conference. The conference will be set up as a marketplace for ideas exchange, and asks:

  • What do educators have to exchange with designers?
  • What do designers have to exchange with educators?
  • What do students have to exchange with us all?
  • How should we be allocating our resources to support learning in a contemporary world?
  • Who leads exchange?
  • Why exchange?

Exchange assumes:

  • Change is happening now: and you want to be part of it.
  • Change needs to continue: and you are the champions.
  • Change is a form of growth: if we don’t grow we regress.
  • Change is a process: it doesn’t happen all at once.
  • Change needs to be managed: because the development of ideas takes time.
