Design Practicum

The BDS Practicum challenges students to critically examine their experience so they understand the knowledge they have acquired from that experience.

In Practicum Seminar 1, students evaluate the four types of knowledge we acquire - factual, conceptual, procedural and metacognitive. They create a "knowledge portfolio" that articulates what they have learned from their experiences.

In Practicum Seminar 2, students are expected to practice and refine the understanding and mastery of their own learning model. They begin to use their skill to direct their career trajectory and support their growth as design thinkers in the classroom and in the workplace.
