Future of Parsons

Aims of a high school

Provide (complex) knowledge on a specific speciality

Additionally provide a good general education in other (important) disciplines

Learn students how to learn and get new knowledge during their whole life

Build professional communities

Provide a physical social space for encounters & social learning

Provide physical & virtual infrastructures for teaching & learning

Prepare students to the professional world and a job

Evaluate & choose taught materials according to scientific criteria

Specific aims of a design high school

Educate designers in different traditional design disciplines

but also: educate design thinkers able to participate at a more strategic level of building many aspects of our future world as "design thinking" is becoming a new management paradigm

Teach common design stuff like design research, psychology, arts,...etc

Current & future socio-economic and cultural context

More & more alumni work in areas outside their original study discipline

Many people have high school diplomas and more & more will get one

Complex interconnected world

Self-organization of existing and new communities of practice (possible because of the Internet revolution) & much higher pace of diverse knowledge creation, sharing and distribution


Knowing all this & more (like Parsons specific figures & metrics..etc), make a SWOT analysis of Parsons

Use design thinking (and its methods) for developing the future model of Parsons based on all this knowledge & Parsons specific environmental parameters (including demographic, institutional, politcial, sociologcal, cultural...etc ones)
