Teaching Design involves learning of creative, technical and psychological aspects of design and aesthetics of an interior environment. Design is a multidisciplinary and multidimensional field, covering arts and crafts, technology, anthropology, science, management et cetera. The course aims to nourish minds with a spirit of inquiry, sensitivity and responsibility, and empower them to create harmonious and qualitative interior environments. Such environments would reflect a balance of individual aspirations, aesthetics, sustainability, function and commercial viability.
The coursework in the B.I.D. programme will be of three kinds – Core, Elective and Foundation. Subjects will fall in four broad categories – Creative, Skill-based, Technical and Humanities. Teaching will primarily be conducted as interactive studios, hands-on workshops and theoretical lectures.
Semester system at GSID will accelerate the teaching-learning process and enable vertical and horizontal mobility in learning. Credit-based semester system provides flexibility in designing curriculum and assigning credits based on the course content and hours of teaching.
