For the industrial design profession, to get success, teamwork is a necessity that students have to learn to take the responsibility for managing teamwork and working in a team environment. New graduates now work in many different sectors and produce solutions together with many different disciplines. This changing situation further increases the necessity of obtaining teamwork skills in design education. Current university students, Gen Z has been exposed to technology much more than the other generations, which influences all their activities including learning, obtaining information and education. These tools also bring flexible learning environments without time and place restrictions, which facilitates and develops new perspectives for teamwork. In teamwork processes including many steps and processes, students are expected to learn to take different roles, work with different people and create a common working discipline. Students with these skills can adapt more easily to teamwork, which is inevitable in professional life, and can be more successful. In addition, design education also involves more complex issues that require teamwork, which includes systems thinking and social and environmental awareness. Rather than just teamwork-oriented assignments, it should become the main structure of design projects, where feedback is given at regular intervals as part of studio courses and students' progress can be monitored in terms of teamwork skills. This doctoral study aims to provide a framework and guidance for design students and educators on how to carry out more effective teamwork within the scope of the studio course and how design students learn main teamwork skills especially task management, time management and leadership skills. In this research, the opportunities and challenges for integrating online tools into the design process to promote teamwork experience in design education are reviewed to explore and develop the learning and teaching strategies in order to enhance teamwork for more effective design education in line with the characteristics and needs of new generations and developments of technologies.

Capturing knowledge in construction projects: Knowledge platform for contractors
Kivrak, Serkan; Arslan, Gokhan; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2008-04-01)
Managing knowledge effectively is critical to the survival and advance of a company, especially in project-based industries such as construction. However, capturing knowledge in construction projects is a tedious task, as knowledge is usually experience based, tacit, and hard to pass on to others. In this study, a survey was carried out among eight leading Turkish construction contractors that are operating within the international construction market. The specific objectives of this survey are to find out ...
Learning about others: Developing an interdisciplinary approach in design education
Demir, Özümcan; 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...
INCORPORATING SUSTAINABILITY PRINCIPLES INTO ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN EDUCATION: RESULTS OF AN EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN STUDIO
Mohamed, Kamal Eldin; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira (College Publishing, 2019-06-01)
Design is a structured process or a tactical guideline to accomplish a unique expectation of a product, while a design studio is the environment where students are taught the skills to design the product, which may be a building. Hence, the design studio course is the most important component of the architectural education curriculum; it is where the students get an opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge gained through lecture-based courses. Yet most theory is not put into practice; consequently, th...
