Many of the classes were focused on discussion and critique creating time for the students to share difficulties and successes with the product development process with one another. Each student presnted their work to the class taking part in hearty critique from their peers. Students also led brainstorming sessions as leaders of a design team in several sessions. The course was intended to prepare them for the responsibilities of a designer starting their career. I have gotten compliments from several of them on the importance of being able to write a design proposal which is a skill I taught in Design Out Loud.
