Stages of student development are presented along with 'Transferable' and 'Transitional' models of student practice, differentiated by the extent and impact of collaboration, lay discourse and 'other' educational environments. On a meta-level, implications for Essentialist / Contextualist philosophy are reviewed. Creative practice 'beyond the studio' demonstrates how residencies often precipitate not only profound shifts in understanding towards creative 'modus operandi', but also towards educational process and teacher / learner relationships.
