I'm not quite as cool as the fire guy in the picture, but almost, perhaps. This week brings in the last sessions of the five-session courses I'm teaching for Giano Academy (see the banner item at the top right). This time it was two sections of the same course, "Introduction to Design."
For whatever reason, coolness or who knows, I'm now scheduled for a new round of courses, beginning two weeks from now. I made a little video to share what they're about and what they're for.
These courses are open to anyone, at any location - you don't have to be registered in any way with an Italian institution, or a citizen of Italy or the EU, or anything. You deal directly with the Academy for the tuition.
So ... (I'm bad at spitting this kind of thing out), I'm recruiting. If you click on that banner, you go to the course list, and you click on one of mine. It would have to be Introduction to Design because I'm designating that as the prerequisite to the others. That one begins Wednesday, February 24, for five weekly two-hour meetings.
If you've been active here at Adept Play, you have probably run into one or more of the main concepts I'm presenting in that class. However, modestly, I claim that I have finally managed to nail some effective pedagogy for these things, including activities and exercises, and also to keep the focus on design. And it would be pretty great to bring any expandable topic from a class interaction right back here to Seminar.
Check out the video, ask any questions.
