Workshop: Discover Design - Discover Germany
As a part of the “Wunderbar Together” initiative in the US, the German Design Museum Foundation is working with the Goethe-Institut to offer online workshops that allow educators to “DISCOVER DESIGN – DISCOVER GERMANY!” The intercultural concept “DISCOVER DESIGN – DISCOVER GERMANY!” is geared especially towards teachers in the areas of German, art, and social studies (middle school and above). A short introductory video and a creative, open-source handout give educators the ability to hold the workshop independently at their schools.
“DISCOVER DESIGN – DISCOVER GERMANY!” exposes students to German culture and invites them to join in intercultural dialog through in-depth discussions of the history and outstanding successes of German design. The accompanying practical component challenges participants to get creative and make their own designs. In a fun way, participants will develop their own model of a lamp in just a short amount of time. The approach used in this goal-oriented design process can be used in future assignments.
