Critical Reflection and the Role of the Architectural Educator in the Design Studio

Teachers Proceedings

Author(s): Jennifer Barker

This paper describes a narrative inquiry into the role of the architectural educator, seeking to understand in what ways architectural educators practice critical reflection within the context of architectural education. This work is part of my greater doctoral research that considers both critical reflection and authenticity in the role of the architecture educator. The site for the research is my own department: I asked my colleagues to share their stories in order that we might collectively come to understand our teaching practice and our departmental ethos, and how we can learn from one another to advance our individual and collective teaching.4
