title Integration of Digital Tools and Fabrication Methods for Learning CAAD - Innovative pedagogy methods applied in a design college in Abu Dhabi
source Parametricism Vs. Materialism: Evolution of Digital Technologies for Development [8th ASCAAD Conference Proceedings ISBN 978-0-9955691-0-2] London (United Kingdom) 7-8 November 2016, pp. 125-134
summary The interior design curriculum at the College of Arts & Creative Enterprises (CACE), Zayed University in Abu Dhabi, offers two CAAD courses; the first is concurrent with first-year Interior Design studio; the second is a year later. The objectives of the first is equip students with the tools needed to represent and communicate their designs, while the second looks in-depth into the process of documentations. This paper will focus on presenting our pedagogical approach in the first CAAD course, as well as tracing students implementation, knowledge utilization and how it is carried over into their main interior design studio. It will also shed light into CAAD influence on expanding student technical and material knowledge through direct space survey and documentation. The paper aims at presenting and reflecting upon a dynamic devised adaptable pedagogical method that identifies two student categories; those who learn how to ‘practice design’ (majority), and those who unfold the realm of ‘being a designer’ (minority). It is the latter few that continue their path, emerge into various international settings, and have a major influence on their local communities.
