The class project will consist of a three-stage process: inventory and analysis, detailed research in priority areas, and formulation of a final plan. This three-stage process will occur within an overall environment of reflective practice. The reflective framework for the practicum will center around two issues. First is the issue of identity construction through design and the way that a design process is tied as much to the designer’s own identity construction as to the community’s. Second is the issue of interaction with the community and what it means to incorporate community knowledge into a planning process. Students will keep a journal of their experiences in the class and will respond to assigned reflective exercises in this book.
