The evidence is in the sharpness and precision of my formulations, which is at the benefit of the very restricted time frame during these online sessions, where we have to miss all the other formal and informal talks with the candidates and colleagues during coffee breaks, lunches, etc… This evidence has been confirmed by Enrico Miglietta, with whom I could have a conversations after this online presentation.
The discussion after the 2.6 session and at the workshop with Johan Van Den Berghe. The two occasions provided the situation when an evaluator puts forward his own practice or opinion as an argument.
I received emails from participants in which they confirm the impact my interventions have had on their research and their growing insights.
Cross referencing of methodologies across disciplines
… DDr opens the way to the everyday vision of things which give the opportunity to see the problems through the urban dynamics…
Criticisms for some researches like Joel’s SF arch. pedagogy the trio’s time capsule Eszter’s games for self-consciousness are examples we can see the concern for impact.
… fight for the case of the design driven research in architecture at the university level
… I would like to explore the future potentials for the DD research beyond the doctoral stages.
This event with the title “Sharing” made it more clear, what the involved researchers and institutions understand by “design-driven” in research.
… I also think we should not aim to immediate impact of procedure but to develop knowledge in a more sophisticated (and unavoidably indirect) manner.
Perhaps due to the fact that this conference was online, in this edition, I concentrated more on the interventions of the presenter and the other panel members. I guess this was because there were no other ‘visual distractions’ (setting, audience). This context made me pay more attention to the content of the comments and I was struck by the wealth of approaches that occur in the panel members’ interventions. I think I was more sensitive to the diversity of evaluation.
The set up of the discussion during a PhD presentation about the role of drawing: as a revealing process vs a generative tool and approach for the design driven research.
The CA2RE+ conference helps me to follow, understand and reflect on the diverse landscape of DDDr. The conference thereby helps me to position myself and my own competencies, but also to challenge these and expand my horizon.
Attending the CA2RE+ congress helped me a lot to understand and expand my idea of design-driven doctoral research. It opened my mind to a plurality of ideas … I also understood that some of the exposed methodologies would not be so difficult to transfer to my country, where architecture schools do not offer ‘research-by-design’ doctoral programs.
The evidence is in the way the /…/ candidates visibly understood the feedback they received…
The impact was perceived the first day, when the conference was introduced by the “role-play” session. This was a sort of orientation and, perhaps more, was a calibration of expectations and tool for initial orientation and self-criticism. I would say that each presentation, given the quality of the reviewers, offered a portal to the character of “impact” and its synthesis into other aspects of the conference and presentations…in that way the conference positively built upon itself.
…by the design-practice related research projects, which constantly not only produce new content, but also develop new ways of researching it…
I’m searching for motivation, enhancement of my self-confidence and also for the necessary triggers to refresh and reboot the previous experiences as a doctoral and master supervisor and/or evaluator, as well as a researcher and research manager. My awareness of what I can offer and get at these events is increasing.
The growing ‘CA2RE family’ provides a steadily developing in-depth understanding of the specificities of (design) research at each participating partner institution and allow me to get a deeper understanding of my institutional network and an understanding of multiple roles of design as a driver of research
For me is in the format and the atmosphere CA2RE/+ is able to build: there is a commonality of aims that helps to focus and to create a creative and productive environment.
…pushing the relevance of design driven research as a recognised field within the eternal fight for scientific assessment of our research productivity.
