Evaluation of Critique It™
Awardee: Michael Connors
Team Members: Dan LaValley, Catherine Stephens, Elizabeth Harris
A large part of the creative design process is understanding and valuing the feedback from others. Students often struggle to see their own work through the eyes of other's and to develop strategies to objectively evaluate their own work. Michael Connors is an instructor of graphic design and was searching for a way to clarify the critique process for his students. Another challenge Connors faced in the traditional graphic design course, was that students spent a great deal of time and resources researching, designing, and printing their work before they received feedback from their peers.
