researchnot.esWe practice Ethical Design

As knowledge increases amongst mankind, and transactions multiply, it becomes more and more desirable to abbreviate and facilitate the modes of conveying information from one person to another, and from one individual to many. (Playfair, 1786) is the ongoing blog connected to the practice based PhD from Adam Procter. This PhD will create two artefacts, one will be a digital tool to enhance and embrace the network and community of practice within Art & Design higher education studio-based practice; second will be a Manifesto derived from this practice and associated research as the guide for the creation of further digital tools to support Art & Design networked learning.

The tool and manifesto will re-imagine the digital managed learning environment. Systems such as Blackboard, Moodle, Canvas and others are built around features designed to support the administrative needs of an institution and designed to simulate paper.

Conventional electronic documents were designed in the 1970s by well-funded conventional thinkers at Xerox PARC, who asked, “How can we imitate paper?” (Nelson, 2016)
