We may be able to educate social designers who can design for human needs through social innovation networks (SINs). SINs engage in three interrelated activities of: supporting design teams’ project-based learning, supporting the leadership in studio-based learning communities, and continuous network improvement. SINs face challenges in diffusing social design that might be overcome through networked coaching platforms that support teams’ socially-regulated learning and leaders’ studio orchestration. SINs offer way to spread design education across disciplines in any organization where design teams need to both innovate and learn.
