17 Aug 2020 • CONVERSATION SERIES ➤ Problem framing in the professions and how to study it, by Dr Nick Kelly




Design problems aren’t out there waiting to be ‘solved’—we construct them through situated cognitive activity that we don’t yet fully understand. The human ability to frame (and reframe) problems has only gained importance in our increasingly technological and institutionalised world. This talk aims to provoke discussion about moving the study of problem framing from recognising its importance (e.g., Kees Dorst and colleagues) through to scientific understanding (methods for studying design framing) and its application in the professions (with a focus on professions of design, education, government, and health).












Dr Nick Kelly is a Senior Lecturer in Interaction Design in the School of Design. He is a member of the Designing Creative and Resilient Communities research program in the Design Lab. His research focuses on design science, design for online communities, and interaction design in the teaching profession.
