Publication: A comparative product analysis of online and face-to-face basic design education
The first year of education in the city and regional planning discipline focuses on one on one and face to face basic design education, primarily conducted through planning studios I II. Assignments are given to freshmen to enhance their urban planning and design knowledge, perspectives, design thinking, creative thinking, and design judgments. The COVID 19 Pandemic and the 2023 Kahramanmaraş Earthquakes occurred successively, resulting in a significant shift towards online university education. Course instructors and administrations had to amend education methodologies, materials, and course contents accordingly. The aims and objectives of design courses were fulfilled through various digitalized learning systems and programs. However, the quality of the design products declined during this period. Therefore, this study aims to compare the basic design outputs of students in the online courses of 2020 2021 and the face-to-face courses of 2022 2023 fall term planning studios at Süleyman Demirel University in Isparta, Turkey. The purpose is to determine the effectiveness of different education methodologies in basic design education and assess the outcomes in terms of quality and performance. Assignments from both online and face to face courses will be compared to evaluate the impacts of online education on students' learning and creativity. This research is exploratory in nature and employs a comparative analysis of two fall term final assignments (The Shell Project), assessing their level of meeting 16 design requirements. The evaluation of the study was conducted based on the grades of the submission, final grades, and course success grades and averages. The research presented shows an increase in the design quality of assignments in face-to-face education. This improvement is attributed to enhancements in meeting course requirements, the interactive nature of the courses, and changes in implementation processes. Additionally, there was a higher level of interaction with students, and their processes. Additionally, there was a higher level of interaction with students, and their efforts to learn and actively participate in the course were accelerated. The outcomes of efforts to learn and actively participate in the course were accelerated. The outcomes of this research are expected to provide valuable insights for lecturers and academic staff this research are expected to provide valuable insights for lecturers and academic staff involved in first involved in first--year planning studios. It will assist them in the development of course year planning studios. It will assist them in the development of course curricula, methodologies, and the preparation and delivery of design education for curricula, methodologies, and the preparation and delivery of design education for teaching the visual language teaching the visual language.
