    The Design Dissertation is one of the most demanding yet potentially most rewarding elements of any design course. Thoughtfully researched, it can be an extremely valuable to your own learning development but also and help you get the job you want. If you look at an article in the Wall Street Journal by Marisa Taylor in September this year she wrote, ‘When asked which skills new college graduates needed to improve most, more than half of the respondents to the question on The Wall Street Journal’s survey of 479 college recruiters named some combination of critical thinking, problem solving skills and the ability to think independently.’ Writing your dissertation will enable you to start developing these valuable thinking, research and writing skills. Thinking critically analytically, synthesizing complicated information, writing well, and organizing your time will all serve you well regardless of the career you begin. The Design Dissertation will help you with thinking differently, critically and creatively. It will help you get a Job and a job better than someone who has not done one. That is what I think, what do you? Mark

    What is good about the draft dissertation and the Web-site:

    The dissertation draft shows very good engagement with your topic, and you have clearly thought very hard about what you are writing about (which is further demonstrated through the chapter plan). A great deal of research is present, which you have used well. Your example of the Van de Rohe chair works well, in terms of your discussion on social issues, design and mass production. Good annotated bibliography. Your website is easy to navigate through and has many interesting sections – you may want to explore ways of making your website reflect your topic?

    What could be improved?

    The text flows well, however, it could benefit from a more solid structure. You need to be more selective with the information / topics used; what is necessary to discuss within the dissertation? Try to give the text some space to breathe (use breaks / paragraphs). More references are needed. Make sure you introduce writers / practitioners / theorists etc you are using / talking about. Be careful when using direct quotes; are they necessary or can you paraphrase? Have you introduced and then thoroughly discussed the quote? Think about how you are going to use visuals / layout.
