ABSTRACT
Students come to design education with different goals. Some
seek to acquire expertise in design, others to learn specialized
methods tailored to a research domain. Furthermore, students in
the area of information system design confront a large literature
of diverse perspectives on design, all of which are potentially
useful. To disentangle this literature and to develop students'
knowledge and know-how for design, a ten-week course, titled
Theories and Practice of Design for Information Systems, was
developed. Pedagogically, this introductory course is neither a
studio course nor a methods course. Instead, it takes a "design
perspectives" approach where students engage a number of
substantial perspectives on design through conceptual and
