Design, metadesign and the importance of vision

Manuela Celi


In the European context today there are many reasons to rethink and re-design didactic activities. Design education in particular seems to be at the core of European Union goals: (i) the EU underlines, in several recent documents, the importance of research and educating future researchers, (ii) there is a continuous stress and promotion of interdisciplinary approaches and of internationalization to maintain and improve the higher education level and strengthen its competitiveness. Within our institution there is an educational model based on the so-called Research and didactic units, between which there is a virtuous circle. Starting from the virtuous circle between research and education and the importance of creativity in design activities the paper will explore the importance of a metacognitive approach and the central role of envisioning activities.

Key words: design, education, reaserch, metadesign, vision, envisioning.
