Abstract or Description

The goal of this book is to set a historical, philosophical and pragmatic context for critique in design and technology education and provide a framework for critique and discussion about the integration of critique into the teaching and learning of design and technology in schools. The wonderfully diverse discussion and application of notions of critique attest to the diversity of the eminent design and technology education researchers who have contributed chapters to this book.
