Teaching at MIT based Open Style Lab

It is my second week teaching at OSL's (Open Style Lab) program at MIT this summer. I feel I have more to learn than offer. I am extremely excited to help the 24 fellows develop garments/ accessories for their client's disabilities. To have a greater understanding of the teaching and learning process, I've been re-reading Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed.
