The evolution of design to amplify flow

John Hagel

If we want to understand the importance of flows in our world, the new book Design in Nature released this week by Adrian Bejan and J.   By pulling back from individual disciplines, it identifies patterns that were either missed or misunderstood in more narrow contexts. There is an imperative here:  “The constructal law is a shout from the rooftops: Everything that flows and moves generates designs that evolve  to survive (to live).

Culture And Design: Legacy Versus From Scratch

Adaptive Path

This collection of observations has made me realize just how deeply culture and cultural differences impact the practice of design. Culture and Design" is the overall theme I have chosen to write about in a series of posts covering the following topics: Culture of legacy and preservation versus culture from scratch. This is great and at the same time almost too much, as it can be a burden to innovation. Quiet design. Innovation is possible.

Innovation in an Age of Austerity

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

On December 7 I participated in an Innovation Summit sponsored by the UK Innovation Research Centre (UK-IRC) at the University of Cambridge. The UK-IRC is “a collaborative initiative for cutting-edge research and knowledge exchange activities on how innovation can make businesses more competitive, improve public services delivery and help the UK meet the social, environmental and economic challenges it faces.”

How Autism can Influence Design: In conversation with Steve Silberman

Adaptive Path

The book, a sweeping history of autism in both science and society, contains some powerful implications about designing for human cognition and what “normal” really means. De-pathologizing is not just a question of being nice, either, because a consistent problem with autism research over the years is that neuroscientists will look at brains of people with autism and if they find any variations from what they’ve described as the norm, then those become deficits.

Presentation to UNCTAD's Advisory Group on "Developing skills, knowledge and capacities through innovation: E-Learning, M-Learning, cloud-Learning"

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Only after this, do we move into the idea, of learning design and pedagogy, which is drawn primarily from the field of distance learning, where courses are rounded up as packages, or what we might call program texts, designed to lead the student through a course of instruction. You begin to think in course packages complete with content, learning design, everything you need for an online course. It is, in many ways, an unbundling of this traditional course design.
