My teaching experience is broad and multi-level from extensive tutoring and individual mentoring to teaching undergraduate and graduate classes for more than 15 years at the Design department and Communication department. For example, Exhibition media Design, Basic Graphic Design, Typography, basic Drawing, Media space design, interaction design, UI/UX Design, and so on. I have been the teacher with the highest evaluation in my department. I have won awards as a result of my teaching. I have been fortunate that many of my trained students have graduated to a variety of design and art positions in advanced academia and industry. Some of the former students are leading designers at international companies such as Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, SketchUp Trimble, Director of visual effects at Korean Broadcasting System (KBS), UX designers at Korea Telecom, AR/VR 3D designer at graphic designers in media startups and design researchers in the academic research lab. Other students have gone on to advanced placement in leading design schools such as Master students at the University of Southern California, New York University, Saint Martine school of art London, Glasgow School of Art Scotland, among others.
