Dr Paola Favaro teaches design studio in the Undergraduate Architecture Pprogram and in the Master of Architecture and previously tauight in the Master of Urban Development and Design program.

Her teaching includes:

. facilitating and writing design briefs in current architecture and urban design questions related to the cities of Sydney, Canberra, Venice and to the UNSW Campus in collaboration with the City of Sydney, Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW), UNSW Planning and Development and IUAV University of Venice (Italy). 

.   testing innovative teaching methods by cultivating in the students an “educated imagination” through the integration of research, critical thinking and a structured system of analysis and design assessment tasks; 

.   nurturing students’ ability to develop complex integrated design solutions

·   leading master and under graduate students to develop design solutions relevant to current local and International design problems related to the contemporary 21st century city

In 2012 as course convener for the Master in Architecture her students submitted a winning scheme to the International Canberra CAPITheticAL Competition based on the RAIA ACT Chapter competition for celebrating Canberra in its first century as capital city. Design submission was selected as one of the 20 projects out of 115 to progress to a second stage. Final Project was displayed in a prestigious exhibition in Canberra at the Gallery of Australian Design (May 2012).
