“Model to improve Experiential learning in students in Architectural Design Studios”.


In Architectural education, Design is one of the core subject which acts as a learning platform where the knowledge of all other subjects play important role and finally with this total learning student is prepared to step out of this platform and work for the world outside. But there is a growing gap between architectural education and architectural practice in terms of real- world concerns and this gap acts as one of the reason for students’ unpreparedness after graduation. The present patterns of design studio indicate that there is more emphasis on teaching the content rather than on overall learning of the students, which should be in all the three domains – knowledge, skills, and attitude. So there is a need to shift from studio based learning to real-world learning, where students will learn from different models of experiential learning and will be more prepared for the realm of clients, communities, government and industry after graduation.
