IARC 599G ST: Pedagogical Studies

This class will focus specifically on an introduction of divergent strategies, ideologies, and philosophies in architectural education. The objectives of this class exist in three parts. First, students will develop an awareness of historical pedagogical models in architecture ranging from the Beaux-Arts to the Contemporary. Second, they will examine several current, commonly practiced pedagogical models. Third, they will explore specific strategies for delivering design content, and analyze the successes and failures of each. Additionally, this class provides the graduate student an opportunity to develop a more individualized pedagogical position, learn varying roles of an academic, and develop a teaching portfolio through closely supervised interactions with students.
