During my eleven year service as an instructor and Teaching fellow in the School of Design, I worked closely with the HDMDT, BAIM, BACD and Foundation year program management team, especially contributing digital visualisation, prototyping and programming knowledge to the subject component and issues in the subject implementation. In the last semester, I appointed as subject coordinator and teaching staff of SD1208 Interactivity 1, SD4263 Capstone project 2: communication design, SD2263 Studio 2: information, SD2264 user studies seminar, SD3250 production technologies for communication design, SD4262 Capstone project 1: Communication design
The best design teaching methodology is one that is flexible, student-centered, and results-oriented. Effective design teaching methodologies include:
Project-based learning: This approach involves students working on real-world design projects, allowing them to apply their skills and knowledge in a practical setting.
Hands-on learning: Design is a hands-on discipline, so hands-on learning is a critical component of effective design teaching. This can involve students creating prototypes, mockups, or finished products.
Collaborative learning: Design often involves collaboration with other professionals, so it is important for students to learn how to work effectively in teams. Group projects and peer feedback can help foster collaboration and teamwork skills.
Critique and reflection: A key aspect of design is the ability to receive and give constructive criticism. Regular critique and reflection sessions can help students develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Blended learning: A combination of in-person and online learning can provide students with a more well-rounded education. Online learning can offer students flexible scheduling, while in-person learning provides hands-on experience and collaboration opportunities.
