What, if any, challenges does generative AI pose to design education? And what should we do about them?
Dr Joseph Lindley
Joe leads Design Research Works and is a Senior Research Fellow at Lancaster University.
He is passionate about the value of Design Research, in particular in applying that value to the challenges associated with emerging technologies, rapid societal change, and living sustainably.
Probably best described as a ‘generalist’ his research practice usually involves material engagements with possible futures.
