“I love teaching and I like getting to know my students who take my classes. Being in a physical space together is special. What this semester lacks in face-to-face experiences is also a massively exciting opportunity for students to turn inward and really investigate and forge a new relationship to their work and design practice. Something that became apparent to me last spring will continue this academic year—which is that students will realize that they must make work for themselves. Not ‘personal’ work, per se, but work which is exciting, thoughtful, and true to them and their vision for what they want their work to be like. Discipline, good work habits and an innate desire to learn and study comes through and shines regardless of the situation.” Peter Ahlberg, BFA Design faculty member
