DML Commons provides an online scholarly community for makers and crafters. Two distinct course options - Design Research and other Professional Pathways - offer creative opportunities in both professional and academic domains. Through DML Commons, individuals are able to be virtually present in dynamic conversations of various elements of design research and design activities.
The Design Research course is focused on elements of design-based research. Four categories have been created to communicate key components of this research method. In this course, senior scholars share details of experience, while junior scholars are encouraged to pose questions and discuss interests.
The Professional Pathways course option is comprised of 4 units. Each unit is made up of two rich and informative 60-minute online conversations about a particular topic, such as academic writing and publishing, which are lead by junior and senior scholars. The conversations are recorded and can be revisited later on.
It is a great time to get involved in the design conversation - courses are happening now!
