Abstract

The Canada Design Website is a pedagogical resource project located at http://design.concordia.ca/canada_design/. Initially, conceptualized as a pedagogical resource focused on Canadian industrial design , the project has expanded to include the collaborative efforts of undergraduate, graduate and faculty members of the Department of Design Arts at Concordia University. Currently at the end of the second phase of the project, a review of the site to date and an evaluation of the process engaged in by student contributors was initiated. Preliminary findings revealed that learners gained valuable practical experience through this innovative learning initiative but felt that this positive experience might have been enhanced with more clearly defined roles and responsibilities. Several important recommendations from the media/pedagogical expert for improvements to the site included navigation instructions for visitors and enhanced interactivity.
