Team Totemics integrates the Surrealist cadavre exquis as a design strategy to advance remote learning and as a pedagogical tool for cultivating fellowship amongst students in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the immense significance of the integration of computational methods in design education, there remains a need for theorization and critical exposition of the interaction between building technology and digital making in online design pedagogy. Team Totemics creates materials for discussing, exhibiting, and demonstrating pedagogies based on the principle of multiple origins suggested by the exquisite corpse. The outcomes inform student learning and faculty research at the nexus of digital composition, social collectivity and structural empathy.
