Dissemination of innovative teaching and learning practice: The Global Studio
Start Date: June 2008
Finish Date: May 2009
This project aims to disseminate teaching and learning resources from an innovative programme called the Global Studio to the ADM-HEA community. The area of innovation developed in the Global Studio was to link student teams across the globe in ‘designer’ and ‘client’ roles in order to undertake a product development project. This built on and extended the learning philosophy of learning in and through doing provided in a more traditional design studio. Throughout the project students worked in geographically distributed work groups in order to provide them with experience in using skills that would enable them to work successfully in distributed design teams.
Aims and Objectives:
The aim of this project is to share and disseminate innovative teaching and learning practices in the field of Design for those interested in exploring the potential of a Global Studio for the education of future designers.
