THE EDUCATION-RESEARCH NEXUS: A LINK BETWEEN DESIGN STUDIO, THE PRACTICE AND RESEARCH [Abstract ID: 0201-04]
Education-research was introduced as integrating research approach providing link between teaching, learning and the research activities recently conducted in the master studio at Wollega University, Ethiopia. It is proposed as a dual research approach within which two research methodologies operate: the teaching-based and studio-based research methodologies. However, as the research progressed, the increasing awareness of the failure of traditional design, has led to a significant shift of orientation in the studio away from research-based design to design-based research directed towards the development of new knowledge in collaboration with the architects in practice. In this study, examples of the research collaboration between the architects both in the studio and in the practice are reviewed and the role of each one of them examined. The benefits of including the world of practice into education-research nexus approach is discussed and assessed.
