Abstract

This study examined social-academic climate as perceived by design students in learning spaces such as the design studio and in the architectural courses. A survey was conducted to evaluate this measure with regard to eight factors proposed by Moss: orientation to study material, innovation, social connections, teachers' support, competitiveness, social involvement, order and organization, teachers' control, and an index for general social-academic climate. Findings shed light on the importance that architectural students attribute to social-academic climate. These factors (mainly, students' involvement, competence, innovation, and teacher support) were rated higher in the design studio than in the courses. Social-academic climate measures such as involvement, order and organization, teacher's control, and orientation of the learning material were higher in the first year than in more advanced years. Implications for design education are discussed.
