Meetup 05 was a really informal catchup and check-in chat to see how things are going. It ended up being quite a small group, perhaps reflecting the fact that so many colleagues are more than busy managing things to respond to current conditions. After a bit of a break the Distance Design Education Meetups areContinue reading “Meetup 05: How are things going?”

The DIAgram as a relational framework for moving design learning and teaching online, and as a designed response to a very wicked problem.
A working note. By Andreas Ken Lanig. In this article I would like to discuss a few of these and reflect on particular experiences from distance learning that can be helpful in countering such deficits. I’m sure you’ve experienced this too in these strange days – Staff and students are doubly tired: First, the amountContinue reading “Taking care of mind and body – the Corona Semester as a challenge for the ‘leib’”
Author: Ricardo Sosa, PhD Background Perhaps you, like me, have always taught and presented at conferences in a standing position.

This is a deceptively simpleContinue reading “Get Up, Stand Up”
Author: Ricardo Sosa, PhD Background Studio learning is a “signature pedagogy” of contemporary design education with origins in fine arts schools. These days there is a wide range of flavours and practices that characterise design studios, from basic foundation courses to student-led and capstone projects with industry. A critical component of all studio experiences isContinue reading “12 Ways to Check your Briefs”

This is a cross post from Design@Open This post started out as a few reflections on a few distance design education events I attended recently, where most of the discussions did not centre around online vs face-to-face or technology and IT services. Instead, discussion focused on learning and teaching – basic stuff, like ideas aroundContinue reading “The Science and Poetry of Messy thinking”

In this article, we propose that, rather than the on-ground-onlineContinue reading “Towards an ecosystem-of-learning for architectural education: random concepts as prompts and provocations”
