50 years after the 1st Oxford Conference on Architectural Education, the 2008 Conference brought together over 500 people from 42 countries to share best practice, discuss how, when, where and why we teach architecture now and in the future. The eleven conference Forums covered a range of topics including Buildings and the Environment; Sustaining Studio Education in a Climate of Change; Human Habitat and Social Responsibility; Refurbishment and Evidence Based Education; Research into Teaching Courses; Urban Design and Sustainable Cities; Schools and Professional Views; Materials and Renewable Energy; Virtual Building and Generative Design; Design Research Courses and Curricula. This volume brings you short essays from all Forums from speakers like Christopher Alexander, Rab Bennetts, Nina Maritz and Paul Oliver. There are ideas here that will appeal to all points of view but they are singular in that within them all is a clarion call for the need for new approaches to the way in which the design of buildings is taught in Schools of Architecture around the world.
