This year design teaching and research at the Open University is 50 years old. We are celebrating this milestone with a series of events to reflect and look forward.

The first event in this series wasa panel discussion with Prof. Nigel Cross and Prof. Robin Roy talking to Georgy Holden on Thursday November 11th. The focus of the event was on teaching design at a distance and the impact that OU Design teaching has had. It will include clips from historic video programmes as provocations for the discussion. We recorded this really thought provoking and inspiring session. We also used a Padlet to capture the audiences’ feedback and ideas during the panel discussion:
