Tim has taught media production, technology and design in schools, universities, and organizations around the world. He tries to learn from his students while sharing the knowledge he's gained along the way.

As a teacher, Tim seeks an inspiring, challenging, and safe environment that respects and encourages every individual. He believes students learn best when expectations are high, experimentation is encouraged, and support is consistent.

Learning with Tim relies on practice, re-thinking, and revision. All voices and perspectives are heard, feedback is essential, and curriculum is influenced by experiential education, design thinking, and a humanist approach.
