I am taking a break from Design Thesis as the coordinator, for a year, due to my sabbatical leave. I am not sure whether I will be continuing as Design Thesis Coordinator after the sabbatical finishes, as sincerely I would like to take a different year, preferably second year, but if I get to be the coordinator again, this time it will be different.
It depends on who will be in the studio masters team. We play different roles and the knowledge and how we apply our skills as coach or consultant, makes a whole lot of difference to the learning outcome for the students.
For my sabbatical, I hope to get some knowledge on the practical aspects of design, contract, law and construction in a contractor & architectural firm. This is what I will do for my sabbatical and I will write more about this in my other blog.
