Exploring the Design Problem Space

Last year I posted my first attempt at mapping the Learning Design problem space arguing a sound understanding is a precursor to any good developed of designed learning. The following quote, taken from a recent paper about teaching architectural design,  I think furthers this argument and captures what could also be the essence of designed learning:

‘Design can be viewed as a mutual learning process among designers (Beguin, 2003) and can be described as a reflective conversation between designers and the designs they create… Traditional architectural studies teaching is based on the notion that successful design solutions and learning are a direct outcome of the extent to which the design problem space is explored’ (p434, my emphasis)
