Abstract

This paper describes a Social Design student’s project conducted during 12 weeks in a Communication Design degree in Aotearoa New Zealand. The project employed a studio-driven educational structure that integrates social, technical and cognitive dimensions of knowledge construction. In this sense, the aim of this paper is to present our experience in order to shed light about Social Design as a context for studio activities in Design teaching. The brief employed a pragmatic framework to problem-solving to develop design outcomes capable of impacting local and global society. As a result, there was increased student engagement within the paper, a fact associated with the process of designing under real-world settings, that produced strategic platforms for collaboration and cultural diversity. It also a design teaching and learning process that are informal, generative and supportive.

Auckland Plan 2050: Rethinking the Future of Design Education in Aotearoa New Zealand

This paper describes a Social Design student’s project conducted during 12 weeks in a Communication Design degree in Aotearoa New Zealand. The project employed a studio-driven educational structure that integrates social, technical and cognitive dimensions of knowledge construction. In this sense, the aim of this paper is to present our experience in order to shed light about Social Design as a context for studio activities in Design teaching. The brief employed a pragmatic framework to problem-solving to develop design outcomes capable of impacting local and global society. As a result, there was increased student engagement within the paper, a fact associated with the process of designing under real-world settings, that produced strategic platforms for collaboration and cultural diversity. It also a design teaching and learning process that are informal, generative and supportive.
