DDes Students Shared Dissertation Work at Second Annual Symposium

Kofi Boone and Lee Cherry at the DDes Symposium

Participants in the Doctor of Design (DDes) program shared the outcomes of their research projects at a symposium held in August 2019. The program, now admitting its third cohort, is a hybrid program for seasoned practitioners to further their careers in design.

The symposium included a poster session to celebrate the first anniversary of the Doctor of Design program. The session featured work-in-progress of the pioneering first class of DDes students. Their posters contained the components of their dissertation project proposals, including the phenomena and contexts under study, theoretical constructs, problem statements and the current state of the question, research strategy, methods, expected outcomes, and significance.
