How I Teach

Reflecting on 15 years in design education

By Jon Kolko

I've taught design for 15 years, and when I started teaching, I felt very much like I was doing it wrong, and everyone would find out. Over time, I learned how to teach by building on the work of other great professors and through informed trial and error.

This book captures what I've learned along the way - how to teach design, but more simply, how to teach. It will be useful for new professors and adjunct instructors who are just starting out. Creative directors will also find value in leveraging these approaches as they build out training for their internal teams. And, individual designers can utilize the methods and processes described here as they evolve their skills and advance their practice.
