Design Inquiry


A sound understanding of research methodology is essential to an undergraduate’s success as a student. This subject therefore introduces the student to the varieties of research practice appropriate to design, ranging through the scholarly, empirical, visual and creative. It encourages students to think and experience how research might be visualised beyond simple annotation of texts or citation of images, encouraging them to conceive of research as an endeavour connected to the entire arc of a project: moving through response to brief, idea generation, production of work, presentation of work and the documentation of work.
