Open Access A two-way street? Investigating the dual nature of the exchange between practice and teaching

This paper aims to investigate the dual nature of exchange between students and teaching-practitioners (practicing architects who also fulfil a tutorial role) and the interface between practice and learning, created through the teaching process. Information was gathered from 20 teaching-practitioners to ascertain their views to what extend teaching has impacted on their work in architectural practice and to explore how they felt teaching was benefitting their practice work. The study looked at four specific areas within a design studio: the potential exchange of ideas, concepts or theories through conversations and discussions, areas of new skills which might be acquired by the tutors, longer term feedback through resourcing of ex-students and the role of an income from teaching.
