Abstract
How, and where, do we educate designers of our information society? We can, and should, draw lessons from Walter Gropius’ vision of the Bauhaus.

From a shared social responsibility, their efforts, contributions, etcetera, should be both mutually supportive and complementary. But, then, how, and where, do we actually educate … principals? In practice, the designer’s work often includes first of all educating responsible principals, at least trying to do so. It therefore is a difficult task for which s/he must be prepared, too.
