After the discovery of steam power and machinery, the industry has evolved faster and the designers began to design products for mass production by the influence of concepts. During the "design history" courses, matching periods, designers, and products could be more confusing for students. Those courses are generally taught theoretically and are not implemented as interactively. This study based on "Comparative Design History" course, in which design students work in groups on various topics and match the relevant cases between "design history" and those topics. In this paper, group work, comparative education and its contribution to students learning, will be studied.
