Studio and Wiki Usages
Friday, May 9th
Followed by an end of semester celebration.
For the foreseeable future, participants in an academic studio will come to it with established patterns of conduct which may at times deflect development of the studio idea. We need to help each other become conscious of inhibiting habits and to work to overcome them. The habits of normal teaching and learning are particularly strong. Students are in the habit of expecting instruction and guidance and instructors of giving it. Education in a studio should often proceed more through demonstration and emulation than through formal teaching and learning. "Show me how you do that?" becomes an important question.

Habits of Action and Reaction
One of the most basic pedagogical habits ingrained in most of us is that that teacher acts and the student reacts. In a studio, that patterns should largely be reversed.
- Student: — "Here is what we want to do. Any suggestions?"
- Student: — "Here is how we are trying to do it. Can you show us a better way?"
- Student: — "Here is what we have done. What do you think of it?"
