Environmental scanning in higher education
Use of digital sources for the renewal and updating of design project teaching resources
Keywords:Environmental scanning, Resources, Digital sources, Design teaching
In France, design training in any field, graphic design, product design or social design for example, is provided in universities and higher education institutions. In universities and other higher education institutions, design teachers must continuously renew their resources for design project courses. Indeed, teachers must, on the one
hand, select contemporary work topics and, on the other hand, accompany students in their design work. To acquire their resources, they conduct environmental scanning that includes, among others, documentary sources and other online sources. Our research is based on a qualitative study of fourteen teachers and shows the predominance of the use of digital sources, and the importance of creating a composite set of sources. This work contributes to the understanding of strategies for updating and renewing resources by conducting environmental scanning in an overloaded informational context.
