Experiential learning for arch

  1. 1. EXPERIENTIALLEARNINGObjectives:To illustrate TLE principles in action.To clarify the role TLE has played in our studio.8 slides…
  2. 2. Kolb’s 4-StageExperiential Learning Model The Four Stage CycleThe core of Kolbs four-stage Concrete Experiencemodel is a simple description of (CE)the learning cycle which showshow experience is translated Active Reflective Experimentation Observationthrough reflection into concepts, (AE) (RO)which in turn are used as guides Abstractfor active experimentation and the Conceptualizationchoice of new experiences. (AC)
  3. 3. The cycle may be entered at anypoint, but the stages should befollowed in sequence. Thelearning cycle thus provides Reflect Planfeedback, which is the basis fornew action and evaluation of theconsequences of that action.Learners should go through thecycle several times, so it may bestbe thought of as a spiral of cycles.In brief Kolb conceptualizes theprocess of action research as Observe Act"a spiral of action and researchconsisting of four major moments:plan, act, observe and reflect “
  4. 4. Instructional Activities That Supportthe Four Stages
  5. 5. EXPERIENTIAL Concrete Experience (CE)EDUCATION Build models of NCLB schools andCYCLE: modify in order to express the architectural translation of TLE principles.ARCH 5140KAMAS Reflective Observation (RO) Active Experimentation (AE)ITERATION OR Analyze NCLB schools. Discover Analyze and determine which modified solutions reflect the TLE“SPIRAL” 1 how the governing principles are principles most important to the reflected in the architecture. individual student. Abstract Conceptualization (AC) Lecture on the architectural translation of the governing principles of TLE vs. NCLB
  6. 6. EXPERIENTIAL Concrete Experience (CE)EDUCATION Respond to your findings inCYCLE: analysis by modifying your digital model to respond to the topography, aspect, accessARCH 5140 points, etc.KAMAS Reflective Observation (RO) Active Experimentation (AE) Synthesize the data. Ask yourselfITERATION OR As a group, document and how the findings relate this“SPIRAL” 2 analyze the site at 4 scales: specific project and to your region, city, district, site conceptual approach to the project. Abstract Conceptualization (AC) Lecture : Analysis vs. Synthesis and the Elements of Site
  7. 7. EXPERIENTIALEDUCATION Concrete Experience (CE)CYCLE: Model 3 of the options on the sloped site.ARCH 5140KAMAS Reflective Observation (RO) Active Experimentation (AE)ITERATION OR Diagram many potential options Ask yourself how TLE principles change the programming of the“SPIRAL” 3 for organizing programming school. Ask yourself how the site based on your TLE attitudes. slope changes the building. Abstract Conceptualization (AC) Video: The Studio School Lecture : Programming …AND SO ON AND SO FORTH…
  8. 8. TLE PRINCIPLES IN ARCH 5140 - KAMAS: • No Predictable Project Solution • Focus On Discovery And Process - Iterative “Spiral” Design Process • Focus On Critical Thinking – Why? How? Who? • Success And Failure • Self-responsibility And Self-motivation • Responsibility To Your Classmates • Physical Exploration • Use Of Multiple Types Of Intelligence: • Spatial – spatial judgement (plans, sections, modeling) the ability to visualize • Linguistic - verbal presentation, graphic presentation, critique (self and classmates) • Logical-mathematical – analysis and synthesis • Bodily-kinesthetic – understanding your body in space and physical model making/drawing • Interpersonal – group (large and small) critique, desk crits. Developing the ability to understand others. • Intrapersonal - Developing self-reflective capacities • Naturalistic – nurturing and relating information to one’s natural surroundings
