Philosophy - my nature of instruction

Aim of my instruction to create independence in thinking. Push students to think on their own. All courses that I design help students to learn through observations and direct experience. I stop being the answer or provider of solutions. My goal is to generate curiosity by infusing the germ of confusion. My specialty is to create courses which require an experience to be created. I hand-hold students in their journey by unsettling and settling them along their path of discovery.

Sunil's chart is one such exercise which allows the student to generate an experience through failures and iterations, which I consider is more important than the final result / solution. 

Until the campus has official signage.

My way of showing you, how to come to IDC, School of design. From Main gate to IDC: Follow the video and annotations.
