In an increasingly network aware global context where technology supports and enhances the systemic characteristics of the human service-based societies, design (lato sensu) is acquiring a prominent place. In that context, collaboration efforts were initiated in 2018 between the Interaction Design Association (IxDA), Service Design Network (SDN), and CUMULUS International Association of Universities and Colleges of Art, Design and Media (CUMULUS). These efforts lead to a conjoint session on February 4th, 2019, during the Interaction Design Education Summit held in Seattle (WA, USA), where these design-related associations got together to talk about their specific and common interests, their different and similar institutional characteristics, and their perspectives on education. The long-term goal was to start a conversation about potential synergies between IxDA, SDN, and CUMULUS.
