Abstract: This paper discusses the course in Graphical Communication at the Rand Afrikaans University. Not only the teaching method and the course and lecturer evaluation are presented in detail, but also an outlook on future possibilities concerning research, teacher education and curriculum development is given. One of the main educational problems is the very low level of spatial perception in the historically disadvantaged communities in South Africa.

Keywords: Graphics Communication, Descriptive Geometry education
