TEACHING

 

My teaching philosophy has been driven by a belief in the principle of ‘personal experience’, and the knowledge gained from a primary cognitive source.

With reference to design education this form of learning has proved to be valuable in terms of the thinking process, and the unique results attained

 

In putting together this website, which includes a significant amount of visual material, it has been difficult to decide on the images that clearly represent the essence of my teaching. Showing the main body of design teaching; the work, the briefs, the students, the studios, the events and lectures provide some insights into the nature of the subject, but I feel that the elusive essence resides in the encompassing spirit embodied within the parts.

 

The work selected portrays a wide spectrum projects, and specific works relating to my continuing commitment to design education. I have also included some key figures, trips, events, texts, moments and workshops in relation to the teaching experience.
