Abstract

The pandemic produced many negative impacts in the Higher Education system, where both curricular organization and the delivery of high-quality teaching activities have been affected. Such criticalities have been evident for the Design discipline, which comprises a series of specific teaching activities involving teacher-student interactions (i.e.: design workshops, studio tutorials) as central elements of the teaching philosophy. This study portrays an innovative teaching experience at the University of Lincoln in UK and introduces an original teaching approach based on the “students as knowledge producers” formula. The results of this study allow to say that this formula generates positive horizontal effects on the learning experience, allowing to critically reflect on possible future evolutions concerning both the student-teacher relationships and the improvement of the teaching and design methodologies to be employed in studios.
