Video recording of Donald Schön lecture (1989)

Discovered by João Ferreira on the PHD-DESIGN discussion list (

Dear all,

I came across a video recording of a lecture by Donald Schön. It was published by the Iowa State University Library on YouTube.

There isn’t much information about it, but the description mentions the lecture was delivered on 4/28/1989. There is a transcript available as well.

I was delighted to see and hear Schön for the first time; I’m posting the link here because I think it may be helpful for PhD candidates looking to engage with the author’s ideas in an accessible format. During the lecture, Schön explains several of his ideas and insights that have become so influential for design theory.

Best regards,
