Abstract

This work addresses social responsibility in dialogue with design education as a possible way for the student to develop the necessary autonomy to solve the complex problems that emerge from contemporary times. Skills necessary for the designer who understands his action and his active role as a subject in this
context are examined, through bibliographic review. The ability to deal with the uncertainties and complexity of the world is emphasized, observing the subjectivity involved in the design process, the dynamics of open systems, the dialogic and polysemic process in collaborative design processes in the context of social innovation, exercising empathy and affectivity. It is understood that social responsibility, assumed by the design student, brings with it personal transformation, openness to the different and the ability to listen actively in any environment. The inevitability of transdisciplinarity in design education is a finding and the encouragement for students to occupy decision-making positions in pedagogical processes is seen as a catalyst for these learnings.
