Effective Design Critique Strategies Across Disciplines

by Stephanie Watson Zollinger Ed.D.Jody Nyboer Ph.D.

Effective Design Critique Strategies Across Disciplines is the first of its kind: a collection of immersive critiquing strategies and related scholarship developed by a diverse and international group of authors. The shared methods include those that utilize online learning environments, facilitate active learning, and engage design critique experiences via play. They range from anecdotal accounts of trying new things in unusual learning environments to theory-based approaches. The featured scholarship presents assessments and valuable discourse concerning the effectiveness of various critique strategies. The collection of strategies and research contribute to addressing the distinct gap in research- and practice-based resources that are available to design and project-based educators.
