Teaching Summary

 

I have developed and taught university courses in new media and interactive art and design.
I also run public workshops and hacks that activate creative applications of code, materials, and physical computing.

 

 

Teaching Aims

 

- Facilitate implementation of interdisciplinary projects at a variety of scales.
- Generate discussion around contemporary practice, theory, and diverse histories.
- Spark creative excitement among individuals and collaborative groups.
- Teach students to integrate writing code and using software in their practice.
- Mentor through instruction, knowledge sharing, and self-motivated skills-building.
