The Teaching Assistant: A Teaching Zine for Graphic Design Educators
During my MFA education, I went through a phase of angst. It was fueled by the idea of comparison. The comparison of one design education versus another. I had always questioned the choices I had made picking schools and the lack of knowledge that I (really) had about them. So easily I would question why are they even a thing. Shouldn't we just rid of 90 to 99% of the programs that exist? This being an on thought out urge, Why not flip the issue. Instead of erasing and start over why not try to do something else about it.

I created this small publication as a small part of my MFA These work to share projects, understandings, and goals with other educators. We all can't be lucky enough to go to an elite school, but we can all have a hand at the same projects.

Projects are created with a goal of specific learnings, similar to the way I work with a client at my day job I build roundabout ways to have a better understanding with the client. Here we create projects that allow students to learn concepting and how to speak about their work.

04. Experiment I & II
Students were set to create a prototype in one medium that explores their question, critique, or point of view from the learnings in early practices. Students should have a specific audience in mind. They then identify and document precedents in all media that pose a similar exploration, and give other students feedback on approach, context, history, and audience.
