Teaching

My teaching approach is non-didactic and broadly Constructivist and incorporates elements of the Bauhaus teaching approach. My approach grounds theoretical teaching within a broader base of technical skills, creative play and a critical consideration of socio-political contexts. It focuses on student-led and project based learning. I am always looking to support my students through contemporary and historical teaching methods. I make use of a range of digital and non-digital tools in my teaching. I use my industry and research experience to ensure my students engage with current industry approaches to collaboration, documentation and dissemination of their work.

In my work as a researcher, educator and workshop facilitator I have worked with students with a wide range of abilities, cultural backgrounds and impairments, giving me the skills and knowledge to work with and learn from students, clients and staff no matter what their background or abilities. I take an inclusive approach to teaching that recognises students’ experience and knowledge as of equal importance to my own and the need to adjust teaching methods and resources to ensure all students have access to learning.
