Earlier this month, Adobe powered the UK’s first ever Creative Week, and what an exciting week it has was!
I am keen to draw your attention to one of the sessions that took place with Chris Thompson, Head of Business Development at Ravensbourne right at the start of the week, which I thought would prove inspiring.
Chris talked about the University’s unique approach to design education, which is just fascinating. Ravensbourne’s philosophy is about open and collaborative teaching and to make this happen, it has put a number of teaching platforms place.
One example that I wanted to share with you was its open plan teaching environment, which means its students all work and learn alongside each other irrespective of the course they are studying. It’s a great way of helping them to obtain skills they wouldn’t otherwise have had the chance to get.
Ravensbourne has also invested in Adobe’s Enterprise License Agreement, so students can access Adobe Creative Suite software to support their learning. Again this is irrespective of the course they are studying and is a great way of enabling them to learn different techniques. It essentially means a fashion student can access tools traditionally used by their peers studying graphic or web design – what a great way of working!
Anyway, Chris explains all this much better than I do, so check out his session on demand by visiting here.
