Case Study. Teaching Design in Large Heterogeneous Classes
Magazine article, 2009

Here, I address three questions, highly relevant for those of us who are NOT teaching design to small elite classes in well-equipped studios: – How can we deal with heterogeneous classes? – How can we teach and assess design in large classes? – How can we provide sufficient feedback to students in large classes? I will describe my experience from dealing with these issues during five years of teaching “Interaction Design of Graphical Interfaces”, a 7.5 ECTS-credit course spanning eight weeks, featuring roughly 60 students from diverse backgrounds each year. I hope that my answers, solutions and suggestions may not be perfect and may not fit every teacher or every course, they can at least serve as inspiration.
