Can design be taught effectively within a larger studio class? Can a student gain rich insight
from a larger peer group? This paper presentation will discuss and illustrate the teaching
methods and benefits formulated as three faculty members with 50+ years of combined
teaching and industry experience collaborated together to teach a design foundations
course with an enrollment of over 45 students. The result is a co-teaching pedagogical
model proven to be highly effective in managing the studio course, the content and the
workloads of faculty while providing an enhanced educational experience for students.
