Case Study 2: Teaching a PDC Session
The focus of this case study is to apply the SADIM design process to the preparation and teaching of a session on a Permaculture Design Course (PDC).
This design enabled me to learn how to apply the design process to a non-land based design, and fulfilled the multiple function of getting a PDC session planned and taught. This was another design early on in my portfolio journey, and i was still learning much about how to apply the principles and ethics, and how to use design tools effectively.
I also went through several tweaks of the design as I taught this session over three PDCs, learning and improving each time, and delivering a better quality session each time.
I am grateful to my tutors Hannah and Marina for being clients, encouragement and constructive feedback on the session.
It also enabled me to introduce to my clients (the course attendees) how to mind-map and use Open Space technology to run aspects of a workshop.
Principles and Ethics
Principles and Ethics are referred to explicitly on the Design page
The SADIM design process was used and can be followed by clicking on the above links.
Use of design tools can be viewed on the Survey, Analysis and design pages of this site.
The design has been implemented 3 times at successive PDCs.
