Design + ethics

Satherley, Shannon D. (2012) Design + ethics. In Felton, Emma (Ed.) Design and Ethics : the Uses and Abuses of Design, 24 May 2012, OJW Room, QUT Gardens Point campus, Brisbane, Qld. (Unpublished)


The socio-cultural purpose of the university has been de-emphasised in recent decades, however, various community engagement projects that have been undertaken by design schools in higher education institutions are bringing this back into focus. Through the design skills of academic staff and students, a number of projects have been identified and undertaken in partnership with communities as well as the public and private sectors.

The 2008 ‘Linking Karumba’ project, among others, shows that academy-based design and education professionals can contribute to social development through making good design accessible to disadvantaged communities.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
