student centred activity in architecture

On Monday I attended a tutor observation in the school of architecture in DIT. It was a really interesting to observe a workshop with 50 first year students developing plans for a house. These students, while new to third level study, were really motivated and very engaged in their projects (the looming deadline probably an incentive), there was a real hum of work and business in the room. The workshop, a hive of student activity, was assisted by support from 4 tutors hovering around the room and discussing work with groups and individual students.
