Reflective writing in design: Writing a Studio Knowledge Object

This resource provides a guide for writing a structured reflection for a studio knowledge object (SKO). The studio knowledge object records learning and insights gained in a design studio course. These insights may be as small as learning a new method for improving your workflow efficiency, or as profound as a change in perspective on design or interest in a new career direction. Your specific learning moments are individual to you. By articulating them in words and demonstrating them through design you can communicate the value of your learning to others. This is the purpose of the knowledge object.
