title Less is More - Enhancing CAD Instruction by Enabling Student Centred Learning, a Case Study for Learning 2000

summary This paper describes a structured programme of instruction in the use and application of CAD to architectural design, where programmed lectures and seminars were abandoned to be replaced by student centred learning and appropriate support. The Third Year CAD course at Edinburgh College of Art was reshaped completely. Only one lecture was given to outline the course, thereafter all attendance was optional, and a variety of learning methods were offered. Student reaction was recorded and the learning outcome assessed. Final student marks showed a definite improvement.
