Summary
Studio teaching is defined as learning through action - an investigative and creative process driven by research, exploration and experimentation; making and constructing; and critique and reflection. Studio teaching develops students? skills with materials, technology and processes of design, making and construction balanced with communication, conceptual and problem solving skills development. A studio is understood as comprising four essential elements: (i) a culture - people - students and teachers - who build a creative community; (ii) a mode of teaching and learning - characterised by processes of critical reflection, small class sizes, periods of face-to-face contact with teacher; (iii) a program of projects and activities that reflect and integrate professional practice; and (iv) A physical space or constructed environment, teaching and workshop space, tools and equipment and technical assistance appropriate to project needs
Outcome
The toolkit has a practical focus and includes a brief overview of current studio models and factors influencing future practice. It also provides a range of useful strategies for effective studio practice, a series of indicators that can be used and applied to assess good learning outcomes, and a summary of student reflections on what constitutes a 'successful studio'
