Design education (Crucible theme)
Crucible members have both advocated and established interdisciplinary design courses in a variety of degree syllabuses around Cambridge and elsewhere. New experimental courses continue to be established at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
On the basis of advice from Gillian Crampton-Smith, an attempt was made to establish a radical design-oriented syllabus that would be taught by Crucible members, commencing in the first year of the Cambridge Computer Science Tripos under the title Design, Theory and Society.
Projects and Crucible members engaged in this theme include:
- Group design projects
- Humanities Computing for Languages (CHUCOL)
- Online aerospace clubs
- Joint Urban Design Studio
- Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment
- Design, Theory and Society
- Design education in the UK and China
Interdisciplinary educational initiatives with Crucible connections outside Cambridge include:
