Enhancing the Educational Benefit of 'Live Projects' in the UG Architecture Curriculum Through Embedding Reflective Learning Practices

Presented by Chloe Street Tarbatt, School of Architecture, Humanities Faculty Teaching Prize 2017

This session will focus on the use of 'Live Projects' in our undergraduate architecture curriculum, and the educational benefits and challenges engendered in this approach. Connecting the briefs for our design modules to 'Live Projects' (to real clients pursuing an architectural agenda) has enormous benefits for both the communities served, and for the students educational experience. The process forges and enhances links between academia and society, supporting both the RIBA's and the more recent TEF's objectives. However, it is apparent from the feedback received through module evaluations and focus group meetings, that the students often find the complexities of this 'real-world' situation very challenging. On this basis, new strategies are being developed to enhance our student's understanding of the educational opportunities afforded by this approach by raising awareness of the important dialogic learning that can take place through immersion in communities of practice, and through embedding reflective practice into our teaching and assessment processes.
