By documenting selected design studio instruction methods,
new faculty may draw upon a pool of education possibilities
ranging far beyond their experience as students. Similarly,
examination of the theoretical foundations, expected
outcomes, and teaching methods of professors may provide new
faculty with a more holistic benchmark for gauging their
