I've written a paper that's working paper status on design and university education, and if you have comments for it--even if critical--you are very welcome to send them to me. Of course, if you have relevant papers that feed into this theme, do send them to me too.
It's downloadable via the link below.
Thanks much and please forgive the typos, and some references may still be missing. And it may need more work in terms of simplifying the text for readability.
Design in Education, Inclusive Design Research and the Idea of a University
Jude Chua Soo Meng
Questions about what design is, and whether design should have a place in education, are ultimately questions about what a University is. In this paper, I argue that 'design' which belongs to educational curriculums must be researched inclusively. Such inclusive design research will yield a science of design that crosses into the disciplines of ethics and of theology, and would imply that the latter should have a place in the University curriculum.
