Teaching philosophy

I believe that there are some fundamental elements that are conducive to learning.

Firstly the Instructor’s role is to act as a guide. Then students must have access to hands-on activities. Finally students need the opportunity to practice skills in a safe environment.

As an instructor, it is my responsibility to continue to develop and foster a creative learning environment for students to reach a high potential no matter of their background or skill level.

In the studio I, it is important that a critical dialogue and critique take place, in which not only influences the students design process but also begins to mold or shape a student’s view on his/her surrounding environment as they are considered as beginners in this field. As a designer with research and interest in digital design, digital fabrication, and computation, students will be analyzing and incorporating works, writings and processes based on these topics into their own design process. In the upper grades, they will be introduced to technologies such as various digital software (design software and analysis software), 3D printing, and Laser Cutter, which gives them the tools, framework and background to articulate their reactions. This process allows the student to explore, investigate, and make possible architectural solutions to the given design problems in which the studio will investigate.
