Workbook on Working
The MFA in Design program at OSU is concentrated on research. We learn to research for our theses through several projects in our core courses. Design 786 with Liz Sanders allowed my team to investigate the following question:
"How does a team of design students organize a project.”
Our research techniques included having participatns fill out a workbook consisting of various activities. These workbooks explored individual and team work habits. The first activity asks them to diagram their workspace so that we could find out what tools were important for them to have nearby while working.
