Course Director, BA Product Design and MA 3D Design, Leeds School of Arts: Leeds Beckett University

Lauren Moriarty's research explores the optimisation of curriculum design and development to best serve the needs of the product design industry. Her research investigates the transition of product design graduates between higher education and the workplace and the impact this has on designing learning and teaching materials. This is essentially a study of graduate attributes; the academic abilities, personal qualities and transferable skills that each student will have an opportunity to develop on their course, and the ways in which these attributes can be aligned to the needs and expectations of the product design industry and associated career paths. Lauren has a strong interest in co-design and the ways in which we can work together with students and industrial partners to shape the curriculum together.
