This study focuses on the experiential learning theory as an important teaching method for architecture and urban design students at architecture Dept., Lund University. By applying Kolb' s model - in a course so called Climate Smart Architecture and Urban Design - , the diverse learning styles of all learners are incorporated and a step by step course design framework enables studio and seminar design instructors to guide learners through each phase of the learning cycle. The developed course will contribute to better teaching and learning and will also enhance the pedagogical discussion within the dept. of Architecture and Built Environment, Lund University.
