Patrique deGraft‐Yankson is a professionally trained teacher with a background in Arts Education. He is currently a senior lecturer and the Dean of the School of Creative Arts in the University of Education, Winneba (UEW). For over thirty years, he has immersed himself in diverse pedagogical practices at various levels within the Ghanaian Educational setting. His research interest seeks to contrast the argument for the preference of exotic design tenets in contemporary design education in Ghana, with a profound, deconstructive position that seeks to redefine design for cultural relevance. This has been the underlining reasoning for his interest in traditional symbols and iconographs that have deep educational implications. He has played marked initiating roles in the diversification of Graphic Design Education in his mother institution. He has been highly instrumental in the quest for appropriate ICT integration procedures into the teaching and learning of Art in the University of Education, Winneba, and continues to exhibit a lot of interests in the pedagogical implications of ICTs in Visual Arts and Design Education in Ghana.
