Since the 1990s, the concern to define areas of research in design has dominated academic debate. As a result, we are now facing a multitude of understandings, this is especially true for practice-based design research. The book „Teaching Research in Design. Guidelines for Integrating Scientific Standards in Design Education“ discusses how the concept of learning by research can be integrated into product design studio teaching from BA level on. It shows different international approaches for integrating research into teaching and contrasts the areas of design research with scientific standards. The book presents study results that helped generate both a general orientation for research in design education and guidelines for students how to integrate research into their project work. Authors Univ.-Prof. Mag. Dr. Sandra Dittenberger, is full professor for Human-Centred Design and Design Research at New Design University in St. Pölten, Austria. As an industrial designer and design researcher, her research focuses on human-centred design process methodologies, socio-technical product development, design for human diversity, design for wellbeing and de-sign education research. Univ.-Prof. Mag. Hans Stefan Moritsch, is a designer and full professor at the New Design University in St. Pölten, where he has headed the Manual & Material Culture course since 2013. His research focuses on the connection between theory and practice in design education and the development of transitions between dual and tertiary education models. Agnes Raschauer, is a sociologist, working at the University of Vienna and a research associate in the project “Research in Design Education”. Her areas of work focus on qualitative methodology, university research, knowledge cultures and social inequality. Free admission with Museum Ticket, no registartion necessary
