Item Type: Book Chapter or Section

This output represents an extended and revised version of a paper that I presented to the Ceramic Millennium Conference (Amsterdam, 1999). In it, I make use of my research into the history of design education as experienced by practitioners of ceramic design to demonstrate that the past provides cautions as well as possibilities for future policy and practice. The research that I undertook combined the use of critical texts with government (record office) archival material. In its combination of these sources, and its attempt to examine parallels with the British experience in America and elsewhere the paper breaks new ground. A central innovation is in its use of historical evidence to support and inform future development of pedagogic approaches in the discipline.
