He also explores ways in which practice learning and assessment can be effectively developed in academic settings.

Hossam Aldy

What capacity do concepts and methods have to travel from one context to another? How can they be transferred?

The strength of Urban Translations lies in its disciplinary and geographical comparison and dialogue on a global scale. It openly targets...
