Readings and subsequent "Dialogues," or exchange of ideas and stories, encourage design considerations and facilitate holistic thinking in the design process. Features: -- Focuses on skills such as critical thinking and problem solving -- Selected readings appropriate for all levels - from foundation to advanced courses -- Weekly assignments consisting of short written responses to the readings "Dialogues" -- Final assignment to write a "Personal Manifesto" -- Appendix includes glossary of key terms and extensive bibliography -- Instructor's Guide includes suggestions for additional practice-based and research-based assignments
