Description
This thesis research project is an investigation of the influence of mindfulness practice within the context of design education. Mindfulness is a present-moment and non-judgmental awareness. The project explored the connections between mindfulness practice, ideation, and creativity through semi-structured interviews, with mindfulness practitioners, design educators and an educational specialist as well as an exploratory workshop with design students from the Department of Art and Design at the University of Alberta. One objective of the research was to develop a framework showcasing mindfulness practice as a visual aid to help explain the concepts to design educators and students. Another objective was to identify the extent to which mindfulness practice is already incorporated into design education. Throughout the process of investigation, themes related to mindfulness were identified. Connections were then made to the concept of ideation and creativity.
