    Abstract

    The design process… what is it? How do we teach it in industrial design programs within the US? What is the role of users and how does the design process influence collaboration? There are many similarities yet also differences in how we approach teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels between universities. This paper discusses the experience of design educators from two universities in the US exploring assistive and medical device design projects and begins to explore where do we go from here.
