TL;DR: In this paper , the authors conducted interviews with six industrial design students who started their semester in a physical studio environment but continued online, and found that the students' impressions of design critiques have been affected by several factors that can be grouped under three categories: crit actors, crit process and crit context.
Abstract: Online education is not a common practice in design education. As the cornerstone of design education, the design studio incorporates a hands-on approach that stems from its materiality. This tactile character of the design studio has been challenged by the recent pandemic since many design schools and departments decided to proceed with their education online. Consequently, some fundamental pedagogical mechanisms that rely on the distinct habitat of the design studio were moved to the online context. Design critiques, a crucial activity in communicating design knowledge, were also carried to online channels. This shift from the physical to the online environment caused some changes in both the communication and understanding of design critiques. In the light of recent developments, this article reflects on students' perceptions of design critiques in an online studio setting. In-depth interviews were conducted with six industrial design students who started their semester in a physical studio environment but continued online. The study demonstrates that the students' impressions of design critiques have been affected by several factors that can be grouped under three categories: crit actors, crit process and crit context.

TL;DR: In this paper , the authors identified studies in design education literature with three categories; conceptual and empirical studies, as well as instructional cases, and revealed four major themes with 18 sub-themes in which writing can render the design education discourse.
Abstract: Abstract In pursuit of constructivist learning, design education can benefit from various methods, tools and applications that directly influence learners’ design processes. In this sense, writing has become prominent as a learning and teaching tool with the attention of both design teachers and design researchers. However, there is no particular study addressing a comprehensive characterization of writing-related studies in design education within the existing literature. Through this scoping literature review, we sought answers about how writing serves as a pedagogical vehicle in design education. To achieve this, we extracted and identified studies in design education literature with three categories; conceptual and empirical studies, as well as instructional cases. Thematic analysis revealed four major themes with 18 sub-themes in which writing can render the design education discourse. Briefly, through a wide range of writing formats, writing can promote processes, develop skills, utilize tools and deal with issues regarding design.

TL;DR: In this article , the authors highlight the benefits of blended learning that incorporates strategic scheduling of physical and virtual delivery modes, and identify what kinds of interaction maximize the potential of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) in the Foundation studio.
Abstract: AbstractBased on our experience of teaching the first-year Foundation studio online in an architecture program, we highlight the benefits of Blended Learning that incorporates strategic scheduling of physical and virtual delivery modes. Our qualitative observations build on recent literature that examines the use of online elements in teaching the design studio. We observed that the more theoretical aspects appear to be effectively mastered online while the practical ones that require tactile abilities are not. We identify what kinds of interaction maximize the potential of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) in the Foundation studio.KeywordsBlended LearningIn-person learningFoundation studio

TL;DR: In this article , the authors discuss the online CAD learning experience through students' reflections based on the Activity-Centered Analysis and Design (ACAD) Framework and ask students to write their thoughts based on a structured qualitative course evaluation template.
Abstract: Inevitably, the global pandemic that occurred in 2020 had a significant impact on the practices of design education, and apparently, design teachers were not fully prepared and equipped. In this ambivalent and emergent era, they struggled to adapt their current teaching methods to online education. Since then, various teaching methods have been developed and applied to incorporate online delivery. As we see an invitation to advance learner-centered and process-based teaching approaches regarding Computer-Aided Design (CAD) education in the literature; in this article, we address how a constructively aligned CAD course has been adapted to online learning and how it affected design students’ learning ex­per­iences. Hence, we discuss the online CAD learning experience through students’ reflections based on the Activity-Centered Analysis and Design (ACAD) Framework. To get insights into their online learning experience on CAD, we asked students to write their thoughts based on a structured qualitative course evaluation template. Broadly, online learning practices in CAD not only resulted in challenges in design learning but also created opportunities as mentioned in students’ writings. Based on qualitative content analysis, students’ reflections on a CAD class implemented under the context of online learning can include both advantages and disadvantages of the online learning platform, peer learning, peer tutoring, active involvement in the class, communication, etc. As a result, students’ reflections on the CAD course made us think that the dimensions of the ACAD Framework are interwoven and interactive.
