Reflection on "Designerly Talk in Non-Pedagogical Social Spaces"
Gray, Colin M.; Howard, Craig D.
Journal of Learning Design, v8 n3 p143-164 2015
"Designerly Talk in Non-Pedagogical Social Spaces" (Gray and Howard, 2014) is a paper on a study that was conducted as an early attempt to understand the kinds of talk students engaged in outside of the formal curriculum in student-run communities that enhanced their design learning. While the paper has only been available for a relatively short time, there has been wide interest in the confluence of social media, design education, and learning opportunities that exist outside of the formal curriculum. This reflection discusses more recent work conducted by the authors, and explores the occurrence of designerly talk in a non-classroom studio space and the ways in which designerly talk arises without the initiation or management by academics. The paper, "Designerly Talk in Non-Pedagogical Social Spaces" (Gray and Howard, 2014) is included as it appeared in "Journal of Learning Design" v7 n1 2014, with minor edits. [For "Designerly Talk in Non-Pedagogical Social Spaces," see EJ1020704.]
