A pedagogical Design Model of the Sustainable Development of Traditional Handicrafts in Design Education
Due to the strong influence of globalisation and consumerism in recent years, traditional handicrafts face complex issues of inheritance and development. Based on Stanford Design Thinking and Sensory Design, this study explores the possibilities and prospects for the sustainable development of traditional handicrafts in design education.
Firstly, a literature review and analysis were carried out to show the relationship between design thinking and sensory design, aiming to propose a pedagogical design model to improve the required method and research tool for the sustainable development of traditional handicrafts. It was then investigating the application of the pedagogical design model through didactic experiments to explore innovative applications of traditional handicrafts. Finally, the problems existing of students during the experiments were analysed and summarised to put forward three design strategies, aiming to propose setting up the teaching methods.
By analysing the problems found in the teaching and learning process, solutions and future problems are discussed and presented. The pedagogical Design model emphasises student experiences and innovative design outcomes. This study explores the value and potential of interdisciplinary integration of sensory design and design thinking to develop traditional handicrafts in design education.
