What Makes Design Research Unique?

Section Two: Teaching and Practicing Design Research at UNT

Design research differs from research informed by or practiced within other academic disciplines and professions in several significant ways. These are briefly described and contextualized here. Many of the projects we work on involve "applied research," which means that we endeavorto help "real people resolve real problems in the real world.” For more information about design research at the University of North Texas, please contact Professor Keith Owens (keith.owens@unt.edu), or Professor Michele Wong Kung Fong (michele.WongKungFong@unt.edu).
