Caro is Academic Leader for Communication and teaches across a range of courses including Interaction Design and Studio Projects. She is involved in a wide range of creative projects. Caro McCaw investigates how we come to understand our landscapes, local knowledge, and regional cultures and contexts through collaborative creative practice. She asks how we may work around colonial ways of seeing to visualize and understand our shared histories and sites more socially. She is involved in a wide range of local community and regional development projects often working with collaborative student-staff teams, and local community groups, including museums.
Caro was a Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence at SUNY Canton, in Upstate New York.
