TL;DR: In this paper, the authors reveal current approaches of service design applied to higher education pedagogy, including courses and assignments, methods or models, pedagogical applications for specific groups and applications outside formal education.
Abstract: Service design has gained ground in the field of education. This article aims to reveal current approaches of service design applied to higher education pedagogy. The methodological approach is thematic literature review. Great variation in the application of service design can be found through review of selected literature. Three key categories were used for analysis: service, method and value. Four main approaches emerge from the results: service design applied on (1) courses and assignments; (2) pedagogical methods or models; (3) pedagogical applications for specific groups and (4) pedagogy outside formal education. Managers, teachers or researchers can use the results of this study to develop higher education pedagogy with service design approaches. Results also indicate possibilities for further research in the area of participatory design, international and national collaboration or value creation.
TL;DR: In this article, the authors analyzed research on digital design in art education in the context of higher education during the period 2000-2020 and found that digital design processes in artistic education promote the development of autonomy and self-critical capacities among students.
Abstract: Digital design processes in artistic education promote the development of autonomy and self-critical capacities among students. Digital technology has transformed university education and the development of transversal skills. The objective of this study is to analyze research on digital design in art education in the context of higher education during the period 2000–2020. Bibliometric techniques were applied to 1027 articles selected from the Scopus database. The findings yielded data on the scientific productivity of journals, authors, research institutions and countries/territories that promote this topic. The data show an exponential trend, with more insistence in the last three years. Six current schools of knowledge related to art, level, formation, faculty, perception and relationship were detected. This research establishes the link between education, art and technology in the university context, and it is a tool for decision making by promoters of this field of research.

TL;DR: Wang et al. as discussed by the authors used the literature bibliometric method to review the existing research on design history curriculum reform based on the CNKI database and found that design history, industrial design history and teaching reform are the three main topics that Chinese scholars are more concerned with.
Abstract: There has been a significant gap in the comprehensive literature review of teaching reform of design history in the Chinese context. In order to bridge this gap, the literature bibliometric method is adopted to review the existing research on design history curriculum reform based on the CNKI database. A keyword review perspective was used to clarify the existing topics in this field, as well as the hotspots of research. Our results reveal that design history, industrial design history and teaching reform are the three main topics that Chinese scholars are more concerned with. As a specific discipline of design history curriculum, curriculum reform of industrial design history is the hotspot of existing research, and teaching reform is an influential research direction.
