The desire to excel in design education: Have we pushed it too far?

Marie Van den Bergh, Mieke van der Bijl-Brouwer, Rebecca Price

Delft university of Technology, Netherlands

The overarching research question that we would like to explore in this DRS22 conversation is:

How might we balance students’ desire to excel in design education with an openness to learning (and therefore possibility to fail) and with attention for student wellbeing?

Sub questions:

• What is the experience of design educators with regard to the impact of a desire to excel (overachievement) on learning and student wellbeing?

• Which contextual and educational factors influence the trend to wanting to excel?

• Which attitudes would we like to foster in students with regard to excellence and learning?

• How might we shape education to promote such desired attitudes?

We would like to shape this conversation as a hybrid full-audience dialogue in which we share experiences, and discuss and visualize new ways to shape education in a Giga-mapping format.
