The Acquisition of Design Skills: A Hybrid Practice in the Digital Age

  This paper will briefly discuss the debate between technological determinism and cultural materialism by reviewing relevant literature. Auto-ethnography will be used to explore the experience of the author as a digital native and her experience with design education, which will inform her PhD research. This will then be analysed to suggest ways in which design education may continue to develop and improve in an increasingly digital world where educators must ensure that heritage practices do not disappear.
