Designs for Learning with IOE|NYU

Running a one day workshop for 14 educators from New York and The Institute of Education (London) was no easy ride.  We created a energetic day of creative activities aimed at the group to show them different ways of teaching and learning within the outdoor environment of London.

Our day consisted of all the activities close to the Thames side (south side):

1. automatic drawing and observational skills (4 ways of looking, memory, coordination & collaboration)

2. Cyanotype from found objects

3. Screen printing (paper stencil and exposed type screens)

4. Book binding (Blizzard booklet)

The students all produced tactile and rich books full of the experimental tasks.

Thanks to Myrrh Domingo, IOE, NYU for her coordination and commissioning us for the workshop.
