Abstract: Little is known about university teachers’ approaches to design. This paper presents preliminary findings from a study that is investigating design processes of teachers in higher education. A summary of the design processes of two Australian university teachers, which form part of a larger dataset consisting of interviews with 32 Australian university academics across disciplines in the Arts, the Sciences and the Professions, is presented. The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief background to the study and discuss preliminary insights into two university teachers’ design processes.
