John Zuck originally studied history and political science, with a particular interest in development economics, at Hiram College in the United States. He then studied planning in Canada, and later pursued advanced studies in Landscape Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was awarded a Master of Landscape Architecture.

John Zuck has taught planning and design for more than twenty-five years, first in the Design Division of NSCAD University, and now in the Faculty of Architecture and Planning at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. In addition to his teaching activities, John Zuck maintains an active consulting practice in planning and design.

John is a Member of the Canadian Institute of Planners and a Member of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects College of Fellows.

John Zuck helped deliver two professional development programs for secondary teachers in Trinidad & Tobago between 2002 and 2005. The first of these programs helped prepare teachers for a new curriculum in Technology Education. The second program prepared select graduates of the first program to train future Technical Education teachers. His particular responsibilities included courses in communication design and production design. He also participated in site visits to the teachers and schools offering Technology Education in Trinidad and Tobago.

John Zuck has a long-standing interest in education and a commitment to problem-centered learning, where students and intructors, together, learn by doing as they address important social and environmental problems. The underlying theme in all of his work is an interest in the design process as a way of learning and effecting positive change.
