Abstract: This report outlines the key steps undertaken in the fulfilment of the ADM-HEA project entitled ‘Visual tools for sustainable design education’. It outlines the key activities undertaken in order to meet the research objectives and presents the findings which emerged. The project culminated in the development of a ‘Food for thought’ checklist and a range of ‘Social Issues Cards’ which were tested with UK students and found to be valuable resources for raising awareness about social sustainability in undergraduate design students. They offer a design oriented perspective of social issues (which has not been provided before) and have been seen to raise student awareness of social sustainability.
Description: This is the report of an ADM-HEA funded project, Visual tools for sustainable design education, which set out to investigate the requirements and identify the attributes of resources to support the social element of sustainable design education.
