Numbers: Five Centuries of Digital Design (MIT) Numbers: Five Centuries of Digital Design (MIT)

Description

The aim of this course is to highlight some technical aspects of the classical tradition in architecture that have so far received only sporadic attention. It is well known that quantification has always been an essential component of classical design: proportional systems in particular have been keenly investigated. But the actual technical tools whereby quantitative precision was conceived, represented, transmitted, and implemented in pre-modern architecture remain mostly unexplored. By showing that a dialectical relationship between architectural theory and data-processing technologies was as crucial in the past as it is today, this course hopes to promote a more historically aware understanding of the current computer-induced transformations in architectural design.

Activities and Approaches that Promote Collaborative Learning

Description

In this lesson, we will be reviewing and discussing many activities and approaches that promote collaborative learning. Firstly, we will discuss the importance of embedding and supporting Literacy, Language and Numeracy (LLN) in the learning experience. Secondly, we will discuss some government strategies for developing LLN skills in specialist areas and also raise awareness of government strategies to support improving LLN. Thirdly, we will identify strategies for managing and designing collaborative group work and also explore embedding LLN into vocational subject areas. Finally, we will consider the knowledge and skills you need to embed LLN into your teaching.

Effective Resources to Develop Numeracy and Support Programme Requirements

Description

During this lesson, we will look at the Adult Numeracy Core Curriculum and also the Functional Skills Standards for Mathematics. Following on from this, we will examine some issues to consider when developing activities that embed numeracy and identify Internet-based resources to this effect. Lastly, we will discuss the need to think creatively and laterally, in order to embed numeracy.
