My contribution revolves around how design-based learning methods— open design and design ethnography in particular—can foster an interactive educational mindset that expands the academic learning context outside of the school. This research is twofold: first, my aim is to contribute to educational innovation in the field of creative arts through design-based learning methods. Second, I explore the possibilities that open design and design ethnography can bring to formal education in the field of creative arts education by introducing embodiment as an interdisciplinary perspective. I propose to explore how open design concepts can be implemented on a continuum in formal and non-formal education. Finally, open design as the platform for co-learning, by co-creating and sharing, contributes to an innovative shift to develop teaching-learning pedagogies that open the formal educational framework to the public space as performative embodied behavior for the wellbeing of all.
