Mr. Mathew R. Pryor, Associate Professor of Teaching,
Department of Architecture, Faculty of Architecture
I came into teaching following years of professional practice as a landscape architect, and quickly realized that to be effective as an educator, disciplinary knowledge needs to be allied to good teaching craft. I had to learn to teach, an iterative process which, for me, closely parallels the design process. Skills and judgment are built through repeated cycles of study, application, observation, and critical reflection.
