Pilots: Navigating Next Models of Design Education


Today I took part in a workshop at the Stanley Picker Gallery, one of a series that are taking place over one month, and curated by El Ultimo Grito and David Falkner. The landscape of design education delivery is being questioned and challenged, Pilots asks ‘Group-based learning, making through physical interaction and practical collaboration play fundamental roles within design development, but such activity is threatened within a formal education sector affected by social, technological, geographic, economic and cultural changes impacting its future. Pilots seeks to identify the questions that are to be addressed in order to adapt and respond to this radically changing environment and to provide the next models of design education’.

My participation in this workshop forms part of my research for the final module in my PGCE, I shall write a review of this at the close of the project in early June. There’s much more research and writing to be done, so the blog may go quite again for the rest of May.
