ARCH 381. Design Workshop IV: Designing Sustainable Futures. 3 Hours.
This problem-based service-learning course aims to enhance students' abilities to apply the concepts and methods associated with effective and facilitative leadership focused upon sustainable design problems. This material will be covered through class discussions, readings, and design-oriented team projects. Students learn core competencies such as analyzing organizational problems and goals, strategic planning, intervention, and evaluation. In the service-learning component, students apply these skills to issues that matter to them and to the communities they serve to generate design solutions for their client's consideration. These projects may be at the level of interaction models, product, spatial, building and/or community designs. LEC.
