Bilateral Learning and Teaching in Chinese-Australian Arts and Architecture
Joubert, Lindy; Whitford, Steven
Journal of Studies in International Education, v10 n4 p396-408 2006
A collaborative design-based, cross-cultural exchange between the Chinese School of Architecture, Tsinghua University of Beijing, and the Faculty of Architecture, Building, and Planning at the University of Melbourne is the case study presented in this article. Two design studios were conducted: one in the Master of Urban Design program, and the other in the final year architecture program in China. Each studio focused on different aspects of the same project to make creative and innovative contributions to Melbourne's Chinatown and a context for introducing international dimensions to pedagogical experiences. Issues raised in this article focus on the responses by both the students and the two universities, the design ideas, and the logistics of delivering a cross-cultural project in two different cities in relation to the educational design and the teaching and learning experiences. Conclusions are drawn from the experience and future possibilities for similar project-based studios are speculated on.
