Abstract
This paper examines the desirability of introducing the principles of responsible design in the formative stages of design education. It also describes the activities undertaken to redesign and deliver a course to introduce and develop student understanding of the relationships that exist between their role and actions as designers, the design and manufacturing processes, social systems and the environment. The outcomes of the development and initial delivery of a heavily revised SDES 1104, Interactive Systems – Design and Responsible Management of the Environment, as delivered at University of New South Wales, College of Fine Arts, is discussed and critiqued by the coordinators. A discussion of student responses to the first delivery of the course is included.
