Teaching Position: ‘Project Funding for Eco-Social Designers’

For the MA Eco-Social Design we are looking for an experienced expert for teaching the short seminar ‘Project Funding for Eco-Social Designers’.

Here is the call. Application deadline 20th January 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 :)
The Seminar will take place as a workshop spanning across three days (usually Monday to Wednesday) or over three Saturdays in the summer semester 2019/20 (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.

Along with the work on their projects and the regular courses, students choose Short Seminars, which provide complementary competencies helping them to sharpen their practice.

The seminar in Project Funding enables students of eco-social design to understand how to approach the funding of projects. They learn about the kind of funding streams/programs and calls they can apply for related to the characteristics of specific projects, and how to draft successful proposals for funding. A major challenge is that funding programs are not framed specifically for eco-social design. Therefore, eco-social designers need to look into funding programs from diverse fields, such as arts and culture, social innovation and entrepreneurship, social work and research, urban or rural development, design and sustainable technologies, etc.
