    Objectives of Plan

    The interior design refers to a design service focusing on the design of interior space, which must satisfy the owner’s needs and limits on design conditions. Meanwhile, when analyzing any problems, needs, limits and feasibility, the designer needs to communicate with the owner so as to propose the optimal design program fitting the owner’s characteristics. The courses aim at helping the students establish their ability to research problems, think creatively, express programs and prepare budget, for the review on the general ability to implement programs. The courses adopt the service learning teaching model out of the motive to have the students practice their learning in class on the site physically by virtue of the service learning process.  The knowledge learned from classes may be validated by the experience in the service process, and the students may find their defects and weakness in the majors they take based on their experience in providing the service, so as to stimulate their motive and efforts of learning.

    The concrete implementation strategies include:

    1.       Introduction of the concept and experience about service

    Inspire the trainees’ motive to engage in providing service by the service experience shared by the senior, and stimulate their willingness to learn by the experience shared by the National Youth Contribution Award and Holistic Caring Award winners.

    2.       Demand investigation and communication experience

    Communicate with the owner through the research on the physical environmental space to enable students to verify the efforts to be spent in the communication for conceiving and practicing ideas.

    3.       Proposal submission and implementation plan

    To establish the trainees’ ability to deal with frustration and alternative programs through the process for proposing, communicating and coordinating the service program.
