Abstract

This paper is a development of a curriculum evaluation of the Spatial Concepts Module on Interior Design Foundation Degree (FdA). The evaluation reviewed in particular the level of student engagement subsequent to the introduction of extensive self/peer assessment (supported by tutor-moderated feedback) and more challenging learning scenarios focussed on creative design processes. The objective of the changes was the promotion of student involvement and interaction; critical and reflective students; creative engagement; and a supportive “community of practice” (Lave and Wenger (1991) cited in Sims and Shreeve 2008). The evaluation raised questions regarding the ongoing use of individual tutorials as a teaching method and the understanding of creativity held by tutors and students.
