Atelier-D: Achieving Transformation, Enhanced Learning and Innovation through Educational Resources in Design
Since the foundation of the OU in 1969 a diverse range of students from teenagers to those retired from fulltime employment have engaged with a study of the principles and practices of design through various incarnations of parttime distance education courses. They have benefited from the OU’s proven systems for student support through its high quality teaching materials, a nationwide network of Associate Lecturers, and its use of day schools and summer schools for face-to-face contact with peers and tutors.
More recently, design courses have included online conferencing, bespoke and off the shelf software and interactive video. Some of these design course materials have been made publicly available via Open Learn, the OU’s Open Content initiative, and through Apple’s iTunes U service. This proposal expands the scope of these delivery mechanisms.
