Show Abstract

Abstract:

In the 21st century, one of the challenging point in education, more deeply, in design education is engaging students to their classrooms. Both of student’s self-advocacy level and student’s relatedness to their design studios are the key points to students’ success. In spite of many studies that dealing with each of self-advocacy issues and student’s relatedness separately, there could not find any study so far to show the relationship between students’ self-advocacy and their relatedness in design studios. This study tries to find out the impact of students’ self-advocacy level on their relatedness in design studios. This research has mixed method with an analytical methodology approach. The results show that the student, who has high level of self-advocacy, has success relatedness in the design studio, and regularly could get a good performance.  As a suggestion of this study, despite the last and least impacts of instructor on students’ self-advocacy, the instructors could grow up a self-advocate student by teaching them self-awareness through their discussion in design studios on the matter of the course. By this, students’ engagement to their design studios may be able to be stronger.

Professional development is more than training, including workshops, seminars, monitoring, reflection, observation and performance of activities by teachers, sets them in the role of trained, who are placed in this long process, but future trainers lead teachers to use new methods, techniques, approaches in their practice. There are many models of professional development that incorporate several of these characteristics of high quality. Recent research and policy in professional development support moving away from ‘sit-and-get’ workshops on general topics toward teacher-driven efforts to identify and solve instructional problems rooted in their daily work. In this study, models of teacher professional development are examined and compared based on literature review.
