Abstract

Many countries in the world have experienced the process of rural decline and revival, and China is no exception. School of design of Hunan University began to pay attention to the rural issues, especially in the remote and impoverished rural areas as early as 2009, and started the New Channel design and social innovation project which aim to find a suitable design education method to participate in the rural revitalization and promote the sustainable development of the rural areas. After ten years of practice and research on design education for rural revitalization, we have accumulated a large number of cases and experiences. We have gradually formed a practical process of design education for rural revitalization, innovated the participatory teaching mode of design education, and constructed the teaching activity framework of design education for rural revitalization that is centered on practice. In addition, we have not only trained a large number of students with social responsibility and the passion for the countryside, but also helped the villagers to increase cultural self-confidence and improve living standards in the process of promoting rural revitalization. However, the relevant theoretical research is in its infancy at present, and many problems are still left to be solved. We will continue to explore and research through the practice of design education for rural revitalization.

Design Education for Rural Revitalization

Many countries in the world have experienced the process of rural decline and revival, and China is no exception. School of design of Hunan University began to pay attention to the rural issues, especially in the remote and impoverished rural areas as early as 2009, and started the New Channel design and social innovation project which aim to find a suitable design education method to participate in the rural revitalization and promote the sustainable development of the rural areas. After ten years of practice and research on design education for rural revitalization, we have accumulated a large number of cases and experiences. We have gradually formed a practical process of design education for rural revitalization, innovated the participatory teaching mode of design education, and constructed the teaching activity framework of design education for rural revitalization that is centered on practice. In addition, we have not only trained a large number of students with social responsibility and the passion for the countryside, but also helped the villagers to increase cultural self-confidence and improve living standards in the process of promoting rural revitalization. However, the relevant theoretical research is in its infancy at present, and many problems are still left to be solved. We will continue to explore and research through the practice of design education for rural revitalization.
