essa and Karl have been sessional academic staff since 2004 in the Design Studies department at the University of Technology Sydney and the School of Design at the College of Fine Arts, UNSW. Over the years they have tutored and lectured individually in a range of design theory, practice and critical thinking courses.

Recently they had the opportunity to develop a new 3rd year integrated design course at COFA, Eating the City, which they ran for the first time in 2009 and again in 2010.

In 2005 their teaching took them to the Central Academy of FIne Arts in Beijing, China as part of the inaugural Porosity studio.
