Student Projects

2010-ongoing

Examples of projects by students arising from course work

In my teaching, I work to establish pedagogical environments that foster inspiration, creativity, critical thinking and ambition. My intention is that students will feel confident to explore their own interests and thoughts while being challenged to develop critically engaged independent projects. In design and arts education, I encourage students to develop deeper theoretical understandings of the context of their work, and in academic education, I encourage students to develop and use innovative, practical skills in visualization, mediation, design and communication. As both a scholar and a practitioner, I seek to role model a professional balance between critical theory and practical application in academic study and design, always engaging with new and emerging technologies and media in my work and teaching.
