Its about developing possibilities, rather than satisfying constraints.

Teaching and coaching is a very special activity. It demands an attitude towards oneself and others that sets professional reflection on work and didactic ability before one’s own views. In recent years, the academic world has developed a broader interest and understanding of teaching methods in the field of applied arts and design. The many years of my experience in education shed light on some fundamental topics. On the one hand, about the learner, whom you as a teacher have to help to discover and develop the learners genius. This includes not only the transmission of technical skills but above all the ability to reflect and criticise one’s own work. Therefore, the work is based on numerous iterations and requires patience and the strong will to find clarity. In the end, the result can be a positive surprise – for learners and lecturers.
