Abstract for your thesis

Summarize your thesis content in 100 - 200 words.

This thesis attempts to answer how a website can be designed and constructed to foster the characteristics of a dialogue among design researchers. Extensive research was conducted on dialogue, design research, and current tools that assist in online communication. Matrixes were used as an organization and comparison tool of the research. In addition, characteristics of dialogue were identified and applied in the creation of the prototype. The Designer Dialogue prototype consists of two videos, which demonstrate the features available for facilitation of design research dialogue. A third video was created to showcase participants enacting an example design research dialogue using these tools. This prototype is the initial step towards the creation of a website that will not only facilitate design research dialogue but also create a design community that is more educated and more socially connected.
