This study explores the learning-style and knowledge-building preferences of interior architecture students using Felder-Soloman's Index of Learning Styles. Considering the learning and knowledge-building skills of students in design education, this study concludes that the instructor should not only be a conveyor of knowledge but also a facilitator. The findings indicate that design students' preferred learning styles are as follows, in descending order: Sensing/Intuitive, Visual/Verbal, Active/Reflective and Sequential/Global. In the two-way analysis, where the student's design studio grade was the dependent variable, significant effects were obtained for each scale. Furthermore, double interactions were highly significant between the Active/Reflective and Sensing/Intuitive scales and between the Active/Reflective and Sequential/Global scales. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

The virtual design studio on the cloud: a blended and distributed approach for technology-mediated design education Pektaş, Ş. T. (Taylor and Francis Ltd., 2015)The studio is widely accepted as the core in design education because it aims to integrate many curricular topics within its scope. However, learning environments in studio teaching have not been explored and exploited as ...
