The group shares an interest in the research of design’s didactic nature with regard to the agents, attitudes, skills, methodologies and evaluation seeking the link between learning and knowledge.
DIDI conceives knowledge as transversal in pursuit of a generalist and integrative training of each individual which does not conflict with specializations but they are rather in need of each other. In this sense, knowledge becomes an intertwined system of different nodes that form a network expanded in space and time.
DIDI investigates the area of the necessary attitudes for an approach to this expanded network, the location of its contents as well as the methodological processes to structure and transform it into a collaboration of all the agents surrounding it, such as the EINA design and art centre. Such exercise is the outcome of the research of the current state of the academic field as well as the constructive practice of this area, taking the centre as an access territory.
Transversely activating the didactic research processes: faculty, degree, masters and research group students nourish the areas and establish peripheral approaches with different perspectives and distances over the proposed area.
The following lines of research are open:
- Assesment methods: parameterization vs holism
- Agency of project
- The context and the student in the learning environment.
- Fiction in anticipation of reality. Driving force of design.
- El " dibuix" i la seva naturalesa habilitant en els processos de projecte.
