Participant work from Beyond its Function in 2017.
Taşdizen taught design studio at undergraduate level and conducted design workshops for non-designers at Özyeğin University Department of Industrial Design between 2016—2019.

Taşdizen chooses to stay critical of mainstream design curricula, and attempts to attain more inclusive understandings of designing not excluding novel everyday user_designer practices. In his syllabi-writing, he consciously deconstructs market-driven product categories utilizing a thematic approach intertwined with a focus on practices.
