Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

This paper aims to accentuate the need for inquiry-based and process-centered architectural design pedagogy as a proactive approach to some of the negative tendencies that continue to portray mainstream teaching in architecture. Building the case for this approach is a key step towards recognizing it; this involves key juxtapositions of the product-based approaches to design pedagogy versus the inquiry and process-based approach. Utilizing architectural programming as a fundamental and ethical approach to architectural practice, two approaches are identified to meet and articulate the inclusion of architectural programming as design adopting an exploratory process and for design advocating a multistep feedback/feed-forward process. Key merits of these approaches are offered as part of a concluding discussion that contributes to advancing current thinking on design pedagogy.
