ISDDE 2018

Culture and Educational Design

Welcome to ISDDE 2018!

The 14th Annual Conference of the International Society for Design and Development in Education was held May 28th-31st, 2018, at the National University of Ireland, Galway.

The conference theme, Culture and Educational Design, highlighted the importance of context in principled and participatory, educational design, and the significant influence of culture, the historic, natural and social environs on learning, teaching and assessment.

Continuing the tradition set by previous conferences, the meeting was intimate and highly participatory. Attendees enjoyed plenary talks by leading educational designers, paper and poster presentations, small group work sessions on pressing problems of practice, and many meals and informal conversations over food and drink, all included in the price of registration. The conference took place in the beautiful environs of the campus of the National University of Ireland, Galway and Galway City. Galway will be the European Capital of Culture in 2020.

ISDDE was formed to help educational designers work effectively as a coherent professional design and development community. The goals of the Society are (1) improving the design and development process (2) building a design community and (3) increasing our impact on educational practice.
