Teaching

Sarah is an Associate Fellow (Indigenous) of the Higher Education Academy, and a sessional Educator at QUT, who has taught across the following units: Design and Creative Thinking, Design Consequences, 2D Art: Materials and Processes, and Impact Lab 2: People. Sarah’s approach to educating is influenced by her research interests in social justice, Indigenous relational ontology, and Pluriversal theory, as well as her professional practice as a design strategist and co-design facilitator. By facilitating (rather than enforcing) the learning process, Sarah encourages students to become partners in the learning process, to think critically about real-world challenges, embrace multiple ways of knowing and learning about the word, to understand topics outside of their own perspective, and to develop a sense of responsibility that can help them to contextualise their education within the real-world.
