Abstract

This case study documents and reflects on the experience of introducing a practice-based assignment into the professional practice curriculum that enabled third year Architecture students at Strathclyde University to deepen their understanding of practice through the development of project case histories. It outlines the issues involved including the benefits which may be gained and the problems encountered in the process of assessment.
