Short Teaching
Description



Since 2000 I have taught numerous Textile/Fashion courses as an adjunct faculty member in the following insititutions:  NSCAD University, Canada; Dalhousie Universtiy, Canada; Alberta College of Art and Design, Canada; and the Transart Institute for Creative Research (Graduate), Germany. The breadth of my teaching practice is evidenced by my years of conceiving and delivering a wide variety of curriculum and drawing connections between a diverse mix of processes and ideas. My teaching record and performance is excellent and my student evaluations are consistently high.
