Abstract

This paper examines how mobile social media is being utilized to augment a traditional physical design studio education context as well as bridging situated student learning experiences beyond the confines of the design studio. Critical to the establishment of the project has been the creation and nurturing of a lecturer community of practice. The project builds upon the researcher’s experience of implementing mobile social media in a similar higher education context at a different higher education institution, and provides an example of the transferability of the developed mobile social media implementation framework.
