The need for a culturally inclusive andragogy for collaborative design learning
Tucker, Richard and Reynolds, C. 2006, The need for a culturally inclusive andragogy for collaborative design learning, in Proceedings of the Australian University Building Educators Association Annual Conference 2006 : 31st Annual Conference, University of Technology, Sydney - Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building, Sydney, N.S.W., pp. 1-10.
In recognition of the apparent paradox between the cultural-systems of Asia and the West and the teaching and learning styles they promote, this platform paper aims to propose how research might investigate differences between achievement and diverse learning preferences at various stages of the design process in the multi-cultural studios of Deakin University. The paper presents a Strategic Teaching and Learning Grant project currently running at Deakin as a reflexive research program aimed at resolving the learning difficulties of international students collaborating in three undergraduate design studios. The primary aim of this program is to inform a new culturally inclusive andragogy for problem-based design teaching through experiential learning theory.
