This section highlights several course outlines and descriptions from the classes that Wightman taught. Interesting to note is that semiotic was a relatively new topic to teach in design courses at the time.
The courses generally required conducting research, visiting museums and art galleries, readings of art theories from writers such as Edmund Burke Feldman and Peter Wollen, as well as doing art and design projects. Wightman used both theoretical and applied approaches in his art teaching. The process of creation is as important as the execution of the work. For example, students are asked to document the process from ideation to presentation and demonstrate progression in their skills and techniques.
