"I'm a designer, get me out of tech class!" : closing the gap between design and technology education
Demirbilek, Nur, Osborne, Lindy, Caldwell, Glenda, & Demirbilek, Oya (2010) "I'm a designer, get me out of tech class!" : closing the gap between design and technology education. In Proceedings of The 44th Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Architectural Science Association, Unitec Institute of Technology, Auckland.
The following paper explores the use of collaborative pedagogical approaches to advance foundational architectural design education, by linking design process to sustainable technology principles. After a brief discussion on architectural design education, the mentioned collaborative approach is described. This approach facilitates students’ exchange of knowledge between two courses, despite no explicit/assessable requirement to do so. The result for the students is deeper learning and a design process that is enriched through collaboration with sustainable technology. The success of this approach has been measured through questionnaires, evaluation surveys, and a comparative assessment of students common to both courses. The paper focuses on the challenges and innovations in connecting architectural design and technology education, where students are encouraged to implement lessons learnt, thereby closing the gap that these courses have traditionally represented.
