Public Interest Design Education Guidebook: Curricula, Strategies, and SEED Academic Case Studies presents the pedagogical framework and collective curriculum necessary to teach public interest designers. The second book in Routledge’s Public Interest Design Guidebook series, the editors and contributors feature a range of learning competencies supported by distinct teaching strategies where educational and community-originated goals unite. Written in a guidebook format that includes projects from across design disciplines, this book describes the learning deemed most critical to pursuing an inclusive, informed design practice that meets the diverse needs of both students and community partners.
Featured chapter themes include Fundamental Skills, Intercultural Competencies, Engaging the Field Experience, Inclusive Iteration, and Evaluating Student Learning. The book consists of practice-based and applied learning constructs that bridge community-based research with engaged learning and design practice. SEED (Social Economic Environmental Design) academic case studies introduce teaching strategies that reinforce project-specific learning objectives where solving social, economic, and environmental issues unite the efforts of communities, student designers, and educators. This comprehensive publication also contains indices devoted to learning objectives cross-referenced from within the book as well as considerations for educational program development in public interest design.
Whether you are a student of design, educator, or designer the breadth of projects and teaching strategies provided here will empower you to excel in your pursuit of public interest design.

The Public Interest Design Guidebooks series educates distinct audiences about the power and potential of public interest design, demonstrating how it has emerged as a distinct profession. The first book, for designers, provides clear professional standards of practice following the SEED (Social Economic Environmental Design) methodology, with a step-by-step process to support those involved in PID projects. The second text addresses an academic audience, to show you how to implement public interest design methods in your teaching and help you engage students in community-based design through an understanding of the core values. Each book includes contributions from key professionals covering professional responsibility, design evaluation, business development, and capacity building through scaling, along with fully illustrated cross-referenced global case studies to help you engage in community-based design.
