Participants of a design studio regardless of the titles and responsibilities apparently influence both teaching and learning processes. Even though it is possible to find several studies focusing on design teachers and design students, scholars have been silent to investigate the teaching activities of research/teaching assistants in a design studio course context. This study is an attempt to understand and frame the perceived pedagogical roles of research assistants in design studio courses. In this sense, we designed a survey addressing in-studio roles and responsibilities, the relations with the instructors, the effects on the student learning process, the factors shaping pedagogical roles, and the administrative responsibilities. As a result, we consider research/teaching assistants as change agents with their intermediary roles and practical impacts in design studio courses.

An increasing number of countries including China have incorporated industrial design development into their national development strategies. However, China hasn’t real-ized the process of industrial revolution in a real sense yet for most of its industrial manufacturing industry lacks innovation ability and still relies on cheap labour to get profits. In this context, industrial design has become the main force to promote Chi-na’s industrial structure adjustment and innovative talents are the core driving force; government plays a vital role in the national education development orientation and talent training. This paper takes the development of Chinese industrial design educa-tion in colleges and universities from 2014 to 2019 as an example and analyzes the in-fluence of national policy on industrial design education. It mainly adopts literature analysis and data statistics methods to compare the development process, profession-al ranking, the talent training scheme and curriculum in colleges and universities. The purpose is to provide development direction and reference for colleges and universi-ties with industrial design majors.
