Intermediate typography for minors in Art + Design: Foundations of contemporary typography were examined and critiqued cooperatively, as was the work created. Concentration on conceptual production of type—mnemonic to kinetic—fostered technical knowledge. Medium, topic, technique and delivery were in the student’s imaginative abilities and contextual to concept. Diverse scholarship of students and flexible course design promoted peer pedagogy in a progressive learning environment. Students developed unique understandings of typography to suit individual needs and research via non-prescriptive guidance and resources. Students were free to collaborate and transgress as needed.
