COLLABORATION AND SELF-EXPLOITATION IN THE SHARED DISCOURSE OF PROFESSION AMONG INDUSTRIAL DESIGN STUDENTS

2018-06-01
The article explores 91 senior industrial design students' expectations and dreams regarding collaborative work relations and environments in design offices. The shared discourse among students reveals the anticipation of an unconventional work culture based on working collectively, which is depicted as egalitarian, informal, relaxed and pleasurable as opposed to the formal, hierarchical and therefore unfavourable environments and relations perceived to be prevalent in traditional organisations. Drawing on the implications of this anticipation, the article shows how the enthusiasm for collaboration can lead to a blurring of the boundaries between work and social life, by inviting pleasurable work, yet normalising poor work/life balance of designers simultaneously.

Learning about others: Developing an interdisciplinary approach in design education
Kaygan, Pınar (2017-06-09)
Recently we witness a rising interest in interdisciplinary collaboration in both industrial design and engineering education. Since developing technology and innovation invites more complex design problems that are usually beyond the professional skills and competences of a single person, learning how to work in interdisciplinary teams becomes a central concern within the undergraduate programs of these fields. With the aim of contributing to interdisciplinary design education, this paper explores a fourwee...
Concept development for vehicle design education projects carried out in collaboration with industry
Börekçi, Naz Ayşe Güzide Z.; Kaygan, Pınar; Hasdoğan, Gülay Fatma (Elsevier BV; 2016-06-17)
This paper describes the concept development process of three vehicle design team projects carried out in successive years in our fourth year undergraduate studio course, in collaboration with industry. The problem areas for all three projects were unfamiliar to student teams, and our collaboration required close involvement of the firms, for their technical expertise and design feedback. Our framework and strategies for this process involved: user research conducted in the field; group discussions for anal...
Design juries as a means of assessment and criticism in industrial design education: a study on metu department of industrial design
Ilgaz, Anıl; Korkut, Fatma; Department of Industrial Design (2009)
Design juries are one of the assessment practices that enable evaluation and criticism of students’ projects in studio based courses. This study explores the aims and attributes of design juries from students’ and jurors’ perspectives. The thesis is constructed upon a field study which consists of an observational study on design juries, a focus group study with students and interviews with the jurors of METU Department of Industrial Design. The findings of the field study indicate that design juries in the...
Learning by doing in the age of design computation
Oezkar, Mine (2007-01-01)
A design teaching approach of integrating the notions of design thinking and computing in the first year of architectural design education is introduced and discussed. The approach aims to enhance and bring up-to-date the educational practice of "learning by doing" in the first year foundations curriculum. In the studied example, the analytical phases of thinking in a simple design task are systematically and visually recorded. This documentation is incorporated to the design process as a means for the stud...
Experience reflection modelling (ERM) as a generative research method and student engagement in product design at undergraduate level
Turhan, Senem; Doğan, Çağla; Department of Industrial Design (2013)
Research approaches driven by design thinking have the potential to bridge early stages of design process to idea generation phases in design education. Generative research is emerged from participatory approach which is used at early stages of design process aims to elicit user needs, experiences, expectations and preferences by using generative tools and techniques through helping non-designer participants express their thoughts, feelings, opinions effectively independent of their skills and abilities in ...
