  • A Working Title
    Winter 2009 - Allen Cochran, Beth Benzenberg, Gabe Tippery
  • This project was geared at teaching us more about teams, collaboration and understanding design students’ working habits. From the beginning we set out to achieve one objective:
    " gain a better understanding of how design students perform work activities, organize their work spaces, both personal and academic (studio space, for example), and execute projects based on their group’s design process."

    With this in mind, our goal was to research the question, “how does a team of design students organize a project.” Design 786 with Liz Sanders provided us a framework to work in and gave us the tools to put together an investigation based on our question and objective. 

    After establishing these goals in a preliminary presentation, our plan was to first prepare a workbook including a brief questionnaire and two simple MakeTools and utilize The Ohio State University’s Department of Design students as our participants. From there we would interview and observe a subsequent and smaller group that completed a workbook followed by a Velcro MakeTool session with a handful of this subsequent group.

    Below are some excerpts from the full documentation, which is available at LULU.COM (link).
