The Education network was founded based on the efforts and the call of Necdet Teymur in 1992 who continued the lead the network up to 1998 when Ashraf Salama and Joy Potthol joined him in convening the activities of the Network. The role of Teymur continued to be instrumental, specifically in generating critical discourses on education and design pedagogy until IAPS 19.
