Having had the privilege and the opportunity to study, teach, live and work in Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia, I am well aware of cultural and socio-economic differences, and how they affect individual learning. I respect an individual’s background and attempt to aid their learning by way of citing relevant examples, securing appropriate mentors or linking up with noteworthy organizations.
The development of these studios, entitled the Global Exchange Studio, also supported recent changes to the Council of Interior Design Accreditation Standard 2: Global Perspective for Design. Here, former students have noted that the experiences from these studios have prepared them well for international learning exchanges and global practice.
On the basis of my development of this course and my teaching, I was awarded a teaching medal from Universidad Iberoamericana for ”significant contributions in design education and exceptional service in a special project.”
