Preliminary Program

Clive L. Dym Mudd Design Workshop XII: 

2-D and 3-D Representations of Designs In Campus Facilities and Remotely

27 May – 29 May 2021

Supported by Harvey Mudd College, engineers, designers, and educators will gather to discuss the importance of process to the engineering design enterprise. Participants will reflect on the meaning of process in design, discuss stages and aspects of design processes, and compare approaches to teaching, learning, and practicing engineering design. In design education contexts, key learning goals and deliverables vary by course and experience; the focus may be on mastering particular design skills, building a high quality product, or gaining exposure to some or all of a design process. With variation in emphasis, important questions arise: How might the alternatives of formative or summative perspectives on design education be in real conflict or supportive of larger learning goals? What is the role of process in the context of engineering design education? And how does a process-led pedagogy differ from actual practice?
