Abstract

This paper discusses an Australian curriculum development project for Industrial Design (ID) female education in a Muslim country. In a first step, we provide background information about key issues relevant for this project, ranging from the interplay of curriculum development, education and culture to specific features of contemporary ID education. We present the findings of a review of current undergraduate ID curricula worldwide, used in the formation of the intended curriculum, with an emphasis on the need to integrate local industry into the curriculum and the educational experience of the female students. Then we report and discuss the implementation of an ID curriculum in two different contexts, Australia and Saudi Arabia. We conclude with a reflection on what we have learnt during the course of this project and possible next steps.
