APPLICATION OF SITUATED LEARNING FOR REALIZING DESIGN ETHICS
As problem solving capabilities of designers for social problems are more and more realized, the expectation and responsibilities a designer has to take are increasing. However, on the other hand, the method for design ethics education hasn’t been established enough yet possibly because of the difficulty in applying ethics to practical design situation. In this paper, we propose an approach that incorporates the idea of “sensitizing for realization”, by applying an idea drawn from Situated Learning as a basic learning ground for the development of design ethics in sustainable design. The method of Situated Learning is also introduced in parallel with an example of the principles used in Sadou (traditional Japanese tea ceremony).
