Abstract: Digital fabrication and makerspaces in the 21st century knowledge society call for revisiting the notion of design thinking and a different approach to curriculum. This paper aims to rethink roles of curriculum for promoting design thinking in digital fabrication. We will present one case study of designing a competency-based curriculum in higher education in Canada. A number of design competencies are presented together with some general discussion about how competency-based curriculum promotes informant design and collaborative approach to digital fabrication.
