Working with Design Contexts Workshops

We will be running a number of workshops, as we move closer to the first cohort undertaking NEA projects, based on this way of working for their GCSE, it is becoming clearer some of the difficulties we face in managing this work.

The workshops are not directed at any particular Awarding Organisation, but will explore ICSAT's approach to writing stimulus materials to help students get quickly started in their decision making and the iterative design process that follows.

Delegates will take away a range of resources developed by ICSAT suitable for working with students in KS3 & 4. These cover a wide variety of design contexts.
