Using Special Collection Material in Teaching

This post looks at how lecturers have used special collections in lecturing and teaching in UCA

Freda Sack has donated her and David Quay’s concept graphic design NatWest drawings to the Farnham Campus, which demonstrate ideas in progress and contribute to typography research.

Graphic Design at Epsom have used these drawings to promote discussion of typography, and to inspire students during their lectures

Our student art sketchbooks at Rochester from the 1950s, and our fashion sketchbook post 1966. have also been used in MA inductions – these can provide inspiration for future work, and are of interest as they show the trends of the day, and what was popular, and what was regarded as ‘good work’ at that time
