"Interior Design: Practical Strategies for Teaching and Learning" provides a pedagogical approach specifically geared to instruction in interior design. Combining theory with practical application and examples unique to the interior design discipline, the unifying theme of the book is achieving excellence in design education. For first-time teachers whose formal training as educators is more limited than their expertise in the discipline of interior design, this text serves as a primary, specialized resource. For both new and seasoned teachers, it is a handy, just-in-time reference for those sticky situations when one needs a fresh perspective in teaching an idea in a new way.The text is enriched by: case studies; examples of syllabi, grading rubrics, and student critiques; definitions of educational jargon; tables and graphs photos of teaching-related activities and spaces; bibliography for further information on teaching and learning topics. It features essays by three educators with a minimum of 10 years experience. There are tips from tenure-seeking educators, including balancing pressures of teaching, research, creative activity, and service. It contains observations from adjunct educators, including advantages and disadvantages of teaching while maintaining a practice and balancing the two roles.
