The Current Sustainable Interior Design Education in Kuwait : Obstacles and Opportunities.

Auther : Dr. Ahmad E. Alansari

     Sustainable design education is one of the prevailing barriers to interior designers practicing sustainability. The main aims of the study are (1) to examine interior design educators' perceived preparation for and willingness to teach sustainability and (2) to investigate the opportunities and obstacles for integrating sustainability in design education in Kuwait. A self- administered survey questionnaire employing both quantitative and qualitative methodsand an interior design curriculum content analysis were used as data collection methods. To guarantee a high response rate to the survey, the researcher distributed the questionnaire to participants personally. A purposive expert sampling technique was used: Only participants anticipated to have knowledge of sustainability were included in the study. The sample consisted of ten (n=10) interior design educators in the department of interior design at the College of Basic Education (CBE) in Kuwait. Course descriptions were reviewed using a thematic analysis technique. The findings are presented here to inform school administration and curriculum designers about the barriers to integrating sustainability into interior design programs in Kuwait, so they can set the stage for such integration.
