I am a lecturer focused on the relationship between music and urban design!

Hi there,

I am an urban designer who tries to combine the perception of place and music. I belive that public space is an indespensible part of the daily life, and the humanity realized its significance once again in the recent COVID-19 pandemic. Public spaces are vital parts of social synapses and remind us that we are a part of a community, and  it is very crucial for young generations to understand its significance to have healty cities in the future. So, I try to make this situation more understandable by using music in design processes!

Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

I believe there are two essential points in education: creativity and the direct experience. HundrED presents a massive hub in which these two concepts and related educational methods are shared.

How can education support students to flourish?

If we can develop new methods of passion-based learning, children can approach matters much more sincerely. In this way, education can become a field what they love to do, not what they have to do.

What role does innovation play in education change?

We need a world where individuals take more responsibilities. We need change. We need to change. But for this, we need to pave the way for creativity and action. The innovative teaching is one of the best ways to achive this.

Three HundrED innovations you love. (and Why?)

Roots of Empathy - since it challanges one of the biggest problems -aggression/ack of emphaty- in early ages. / Forest Schools - since it teaches children that they are a part of the natural environment. / ProjectArt - since it encourages children over artistic experiences to form connections with the community.
