Abstract

The design studio has been the preferred environment to support creative, social and artefact-centred design education and practice. While corporate design studios become increasingly connected across locations, design education becomes progressively augmented with virtual learning environments.Virtual and blended studios differ from traditional physical environments in significant ways. With designers working at a distance, the people, resources, and objects of design are not physically co-located, which poses particular challenges but also offers some unique benefits.This conversation is going to tackle the question: How can we best support learners in virtual design studios?
