Typi non habent claritatem insitam; est usus legentis in iis qui facit eorum claritatem. Investigationes demonstraverunt lectores legere me lius quod ii legunt saepius. Claritas est etiam processus dynamicus, qui sequitur mutationem consuetudium lectorum. Mirum est notare quam littera gothica, quam nunc putamus parum claram, anteposuerit litterarum formas humanitatis per seacula quarta decima et quinta decima. Eodem modo typi, qui nunc nobis videntur parum clari, fiant sollemnes in futurum.Reference:Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat. Ut wisi enim ad minim veniam, Using mind maps, self directed essays and peer review in design historyArianne Rourke and Annabelle Lewer-Fletcher, School of Art History and Art EducationThis poster showcases a blended design history course that utilises the Moodle Learning Management System (LMS) to teach third year students how to research and write self-directed essays and to produce group film presentations. In this course students write their own essay questions based around a list of themes, to assist with this essay schemas are provided. Students are also required to produce digital mind maps, which they add to as they reflect on their learning from research, lectures and tutorial class activities. Within the LMS students discuss and organise their group film presentations and use the lecture summaries and visual material to assist with their lecture note-taking. Students are encouraged to watch a series of designer interviews and read a selection of articles to assist them to write their own philosophy about design. Worked examples of mind maps are also provided in the LMS to demonstrate to students how to link lecture knowledge, research and studio practice with their ideas and interests about design. Using a rubrics and assessment criteria, students practice peer reviewing, then they peer review group film presentations in class, with the objective of learning how to give well-considered feedback. This poster will demonstrate how in a virtual and classroom active learning environment the objectives of promoting self-directed learning, developing critical problem-solving skills, working collaboratively in groups and learning to provide fair and considered peer feedback can be achieved when knowledge and understanding of design history is given both personal as well as real world relevance.Reference:Garrison, D.
