Rethinking The Crit is the title of an upcoming book that explores the crit as a method of feedback. The book -  through a collection of essays - critically examines the pedagogical theory underlying this approach, discusses recent critiques of this approach and the reality of the crit is examined through analysis of practice. It explores the challenges for education and describes how changes to feedback in education can shape the future of architecture and the creative arts.

This one day event brings the contributors of the book - from Ireland, the UK, Europe, USA and Australia - together to discuss and debate their thoughts and research.

The seminar will be followed by the book launch at 6:00pm.

The research project was funded by The National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning in Higher Education.
