TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
My teaching style is demanding but fair
Successful teaching requires passionate and enthusiastic
leadership with positive encouragement based learning
Students are encouraged to take risks and experiment, 
as some of the best learning comes from making mistakes
It is important to introduce the work practices and
behaviour of business into a design course
Being balanced in your work/home life allows you
to deliver high-quality work over a long period
Students are encouraged to think internationally
and aim for the top
