85604 Reflective Practice

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


Professional designers are reflective practitioners, reflecting on their designs and their designing, while designing and after completing a job. Expert designers share their reflections with their peers and actively challenge the habits and prejudices revealed by their reflections. Through a series of readings, design exercises and writing exercises, students learn how to notice aspects of their designing worth reflecting on, how to interrogate what they notice, develop and test theories about their designing, and how to implement changes to the way they design.
