Design Education is an online free community for sharing knowledge and ideas on how to improve the design learning experience.

The community interacts through an online group on Slack. To join, you need to fill out a Google Form. It asks for information related to your possible contribution to the community and your interest in it. All forms are reviewed at the beginning of each month and just the ones accepted will receive a reply.

The Slack group has interactive channels to support members. You can even find SOS channels for immediate support. There are also spaces to provide feedback. On the other hand, members of Design Education meet through a series of virtual events called "Listening Lounge".

Design Education selects a monthly theme to direct the discussion each month. This helps build a more solid conversation among members. For instance, one month can be focused on business while another one is on learning experience design.

The community also recommends 15 alternative options to learn about design. Some of these are forums while others are communities on Notion or with diverse online groups.
