Teaching philosophy

I want to create an environment where students can express themselves. My main goal is to create a comfortable environment where students feel secure, enough to push their current abilities and be open to critical analysis in a group setting and one-on-one with the instructor.

Especially I firmly believe that “active learning” in the design studio is the only way to help students become independent thinkers who actively use the design process (concept to finished product) to reach their individual learning outcomes. “Active learning” can be defined as learning through “doing”: conceptualizing, creating, critiquing, revising while implementing time management skills and being deadline oriented. All these outcomes will be actively applied once entering their field of practice.
