Here is a link to an Australian National level Research Project on Studio Teaching.
“The studio experience is an integral part – many would say the integral part – in the education of students in many creative disciplines.
But what do we mean by the “studio experience”? How is it best realised? How can we measure its effectiveness? And how does the “studio experience” relate to the current climate in higher education?
This website describes the Studio Teaching Project that has focussed on these and other questions relating to studio teaching across Art, Architecture and Design-oriented disciplines. It also provides a practical toolkit for studio teachers including strategies for teaching and assessment and good practice case studies.”
