Contemporary communication technologies and design education. This keynote considered how contemporary communication technologies may be applied to assist teaching and learning in Design Education. Mediums such as videos, blogs, podcasts and online forums have a powerful potential to improve convenience, access and experience for many students. They may, simultaneously, carry negative side effects such as isolating young designers in what is, at its core, a collaborative field of practice. These communication methods were discussed through examples from university research and teaching practice.
