Digital design of design processes – A case study of a design research study in vocational education
The digital transformation affects all aspects of the society, including educational and scientific areas. Regarding the educational area, digital devices as a part of vocational lessons seem to be promising a better support of the learning processes. In a given design research project (tabletBS.dual) in the field of vocational education, didactical prototypes for using tablets in a motivational and effective way are developed in different vocational schools. For this, four design cycles with the phases design application and evaluation are carried out. The article focuses on the description of the digital character of the design cycles. In the presented project, different digital devices and tools are used in the several phases of a design cycle (e.g. digital consultation hours for vocational teachers to plan lessons or to conduct digital interviews with their students in the evaluation phase). We will go into detail about the digital devices and technologies used to point out the potentials of digitization in regard to the design of design and evaluation processes.
