Title: Scaffolding Undergraduate Creative Experiential Learning: Effective Practices and Lessons Learned from a First-year Design Studio.

Presenters: Saskia van Kampen, FoD

Description

This presentation will examine how the use of scaffolded assignments helped students adapt to new ways of learning and making. These assignments incorporate writing across the curriculum theory (WAC) and strategies for student learning. An important issue that this research raises is that creative processes are not chronological—they vary depending on the assignment and the individual student. This creates a variety of challenges that need to be addressed in advance of or during an assignment that is scaffolded. The central question focusing this research is: Can creative design processes, so unique to individuals, be scaffolded and if so how?

For furniture makers, it is not always the object alone that is pursued. As students at OCAD University, we are encouraged to look beyond the final object, to explore and to develop our thinking around the context. The role of furniture as a medium for personal expression, as a reflection of social and cultural norms, and as an influence upon human behaviour becomes the focal point. This exhibition presents original furniture pieces that take these broader discussions into consideration. Growth requires exploration, the goal is to plant the seeds of passion rather than ego. This annual exhibition of furniture created by the students of OCAD University is now in its eighth year and has become a valued tradition within the school’s design department.
