Design Teaching Lab (DTL)

This course teaches design teaching for those interested in pursuing parallel paths in design and education.   Starting from an understanding of design as a culture of critique and iteration, this course will serve as a laboratory for the critical examination of how we learn about and through design.   Through a series of interactive workshops, we will collaboratively redline design education, closely reading its typical terms, media, and practices while simultaneously analyzing and annotating the pedagogical spaces and formats within and around which design learning usually takes place.  The aim is to develop projective possibilities for design education that can be directly applied to GSD Early Design Education (EDE) teaching positions as “field work” extending the research of the course, as well as to design teaching engagements beyond the GSD.
