We invite you to our second symposium, “Finding a common ground for practicing and teaching DBR”, which will take place on September 28, 2023 in Hamburg. Teaching and communicating DBR in an understandable way and giving researchers guidance in their own projects are challenges that we want to address by bringing different DBR-internal and external perspectives together.

Arthur Bakker (Utrecht University) will lead our thoughts toward a didactics of design research. DBR network member Heidrun Allert (CAU Kiel) asks where responsibility is located in design and design research. Design researcher Pieter Jan Stappers (TU Delft) gives us insight into the theoretical side of research through design, and cognitive psychologist Ingrid Scharlau (University of Paderborn) will provide us with another DBR-external perspective. Since the second symposium will also be the last of the DBR network in its current form, we will devote the end of the event not only to concluding thoughts on practicing and teaching DBR, but also to the future of networking in DBR. The discussion will be supported by a presentation from Raquel Tusi Tamiosso (Universidade Franciscana de Santa Maria).
