Teaching Position: ‘Objects–Spaces–Services’ in Eco-Social Design

For the MA Eco-Social Design we are looking for an experienced design practitioner with a focus on ‘Objects–Spaces–Services’ co-leading the studio course ‘Project 2’ in Eco-Social Design.

Here is the call. Application deadline 16 November 2020, 12:00 a.m. If you have questions about the application procedure please send an email to Recruitment Design. For questions concerning the MA Eco-Social Design and the teaching practice please contact me via email. My apologies for the extreme bureaucratese form of the call. It is out of my hands to make this different :( But the work itself and the atmosphere in our study course and research projects are sunny and truly collaborative :)
Project 2 takes place in the summer semester 2020/21 (End of February 2020 to end of June 2020; the contract can be renewed two times, usually resulting in teaching the semester course for three years in total)

The practice-based and transdisciplinary Master in Eco-Social Design is an educational framework for designers who aim to contribute to more sustainable, resilient and fair futures. It supports students in developing their reflective practice by introducing students to challenges, partners, knowledges, instruments and strategies from diverse fields, which they draw together in their autonomous projects.

In Project 2 students develop projects in small teams with external partners from “the real world”, which they choose themselves. In a dialogue with them, they go through the process from project definition to prototyping. Project 2 is led by a team of teachers: two design practitioners, covering the areas Objects–Spaces-Services  and Communication–Interaction–Services, who collaborate closely with the teacher of the course in Design Research. They provide input, facilitate learning experiences and coach students. Both students and teachers foster transdisciplinary dialogue and actions, among others by involving teachers of the courses of the areas Observe, Analyse & Apply (Social Sciences & Economics) and of Make & Intervene (Design Disciplines).

The project leader in Objects–Spaces–Services supports the development of each student’s project and practices, in particular, related to the design of objects, spaces and related services bringing in best practice from socially, politically and environmentally engaged design.
