I knew a teacher once who used to say this process (education) would be so much easier if we could cut the tops of their heads off an pour the information in.
There are times as we head down the architect education path that I feel that way as well. Its funny becuase there is so much information about architecture available. From patterns to frameworks and processes its all out there. What is missing (and what I feel like we’ve built in the IASA education program) is the linkage. We are (hopefully) bringing it all together and laying it out as a path and a process for you to work through your skills and improve them.
At least that is the dream and goal. It won’t be perfect for all people (and truly humans and snowflakes are unique) but it is a great compilation that moves us from theory to relaity.
