Most design researchers working in Design Schools are involved in design education. These two activities, research and education, have the potential to feed and inspire each other, because they are
both based on the same underlying mechanism of generating design knowledge, both relying on learning by doing, yet both from a different perspective. This paper will illustrate the synergy between
design education and design research with the case of the research domain of Tactual Aesthetics, a domain that was in large part explored and developed in collaboration with design students and in the context of design education.

Keywords: Design knowledge, learning by doing, synergy, tactual aesthetics
