Abstract

This paper addresses the discussion about how designers and design educations should consider the challenges of increasingly faster and unpredictably changing markets. By looking into the domains of software and web development, burdened with similar challenges of changing environments, the procedures of Agile Development are identified as a possible solution to the problem. The paper unfolds procedures of Agile Development in an attempt to utilise them as tools in the Industrial Design education. Furthermore, a set of learning structures from Cooperative Learning are proposed as a feasible way of introducing concepts of Agile Development in the curriculum of the design educations and how to evaluate these activities is discussed.
