How to make teaching environments for interior design students more aligned with those in creative practice

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The teaching of Interior Design in Universities continues to be a growing field, with increasing numbers of courses and students. Whilst the pedagogical aspect of Interior Design education is debated, researched and written about in some detail, there is very little emphasis given to the actual teaching environments that the students are learning in. Growth in research related to the creative office workplace has led to innovations in how those spaces are planned. This has not filtered down to the university design studio, which sadly is still seem as an educational space rather than a workplace. Given that interior design is a vocationally focused course, this paper looks at how the Interior Design teaching space could be improved by looking to lessons from related industry spaces. It will investigate the current situation and suggest a paradigm for change to improve the teaching studio experience for students.
