WELCOME TO THE SCHOOL OF
Art and Design
PART OF THE FACULTY FOR HUMANITIES.
Design, usually considered in the context of the applied arts, engineering, architecture, and other such creative endeavours, is used as both a noun and a verb. "Design" as a verb refers to the process of originating and developing a plan for a new object (machine, building, product, etc.). As a noun, "design" is used both for the final plan or proposal (a drawing, model, or other description), or the result of implementing that plan or proposal (the object produced).

Note to new instructors
- Divisions and Departments of the School exist on pages in "topic" namespace. When you want to create a new division or department, start the name of departments with the "Topic:" prefix; departments reside in the Topic: namespace. Departments and divisions link to learning materials and learning projects. Divisions can link subdivisions or to departments. For more information on schools, divisions and departments look at the Naming Conventions.
- The histories of Wikiversity pages indicate who the active participants are. If you are an active participant in this school, you can list your name here (this can help small schools grow and the participants communicate better; for large schools it is not needed).
Get to work writing lessons! Simply make a link to the name of the lesson (lessons are independent pages in the main namespace) and start writing! Remember, Wikiversity has adopted the "learning by doing" model for education. Lessons should center on learning activities for Wikiversity participants. We learn by doing.
This feature of Wikiversity will be implemented later pending further discussion.
