yesterday I presented this ‘Designers-Behaviour-Grid’ to 2nd year Illustration students.
It was my intention to discuss with students what type of behavior we desire from design students in projects. I think most students know what type of behavior is expected, but sometimes they choose to act differently.
I tried to explain that I believe it’s normal and human that students can’t always act like professionals yet. Part of their education is to learn how to act properly. However in order to learn how to behave; I would like to recommend students to become aware of different roles they can choose from. If they know which roles there are; they can vary and learn how to play each role.
I think that by learning to play the different roles, students can acquire a bigger insight in themselves and what they can be. I hope students can use the grid as reference and play with it during projects as they see fit. It was version 1.0.
