Experiential Learning in Campus Evaluation: Integrated Design Research Methodologies

Rebekah Radtke

Abstract


How can we utilize the campus as an active and engaging laboratory for design students? How can we create an inclusive design research model in higher education? By utilizing a post-occupancy evaluation process, students completed a nine-month study to investigate and assess the investment in student living and learning spaces. The process utilizes design research as a community engaged model, with collaboration among a diverse group of administration, partners, staff, faculty, and most importantly, students.  By combining the need for design research on campus and a framework for participatory research models, this case study reveals the importance of assessing campus buildings to support learning and engagement.
