Open Access Towards an Ecosystem-of-Learning for Architectural Education: Reflecting on a network of six pedagogical clusters

This research is situated in the context of our collective exploration of a new ecosystem-of-learning for architectural education, as a catalyst for change following the experience of the COVID-19 pandemic. To move online architectural education beyond emergency remote teaching, requires a total reset of current thinking and practices. In this essay, we propose a complex network of six new pedagogical clusters, namely Anthropy Pedagogy, Catalytic Pedagogy, Synergic Pedagogy, Co-generative Pedagogy, Spatio-temporal Pedagogy, and Meta-morphic Pedagogy. We approached our research using an iterative and reflective narrative inquiry method. Examining the development of these complex pedagogical clusters, we highlight the most promising potential contributions towards a responsive, resilient, and replicable ecosystem-of-learning approach for architectural education.
