RESEARCH PROJECTS > ADM-HEA: Dissemination of innovative teaching and learning practice: The Global Studio

Aims and Objectives:

The aim of the Dissemination of innovative teaching and learning practice: The Global Studio a year long funded project was to share and disseminate innovative teaching and learning practices in the field of Design to the ADM-HEA communityfor and for those interested in exploring the potential of a Global Studio for the education of future designers. 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.
