Brent: A story of continuous learning
Studying architectural technology at Fanshawe was the first step in my post-secondary education. A rewarding program and a particularly fascinating architectural history course inspired me to further my education and ultimately pursue an academic career. After graduating, using the skills I learned and the networks I made at Fanshawe, I worked for an architectural firm in Toronto while earning first a B.A. (Hons) and then a Masters of Art, in architecture and art history respectively. Subsequently I moved to London, UK, to study for a Ph.D. in architectural history and theory at The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London (UCL). Since earning my doctorate, I have worked to establish a career at UCL, teaching architectural history and leading initiatives to improve higher education. Along with this, I am focusing on disseminating my research through scholarly articles and books, while also studying part-time towards more postgraduate study -- recognition for my university teaching.
It’s clear that my time at Fanshawe laid the foundation for both a good career, and a passion for continuous learning.
