Sharing practices: Enquiry and autonomy in Construction Systems 2

No-one wants to hire an architectural technician or draftsperson who can’t think for themselves. So Amos Clarke is making it his mission to ensure that students in the National Diploma in Architectural Technology are acquiring the core skills of enquiry and autonomy while they study.
