Oxford Design Charette

Oxford, St Hilda's College. 26 August, 2014.

In August 2014 the staff at Department of Design, Linnaeus University, Sweden gathered in Oxford for two intensive learning days in preparation for the launch of two new degree programmes, Design + Change and Visual Communication + Change , in 2015.  Mathilda and Anette facilitated a design charette which  enabled the staff to go through the six terms of the three years of the degree programmes in one intense day!

A key insight was how valuable an immersive process without disruptive show-and-tells can be. The staff engaged in a series of mini-projects, involving mapping, role-play, making and more, staying inside the process all day long. Instead of formal presentations of project results, each term ended with a quiet moment of ‘graphic harvesting’ of experiences through means of drawing and writing.
