Design in context 2

October 10, 2014 § Leave a comment

In this lecture we met our new lecturer Anna and I really like her lectures, they are very clear and she has a lot of experience and you can tell that she really enjoys what she teaches. In this lecture she mainly went over our timetable for the term and told us about herself and her previous work history.

my notes…

Anna Powell lecture 1- 10/10/14

Theory, Practice and History- all interconnect

We need the tools and language to be able to explain our practice and ideas.
