Teaching

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

Engagement, interaction, challenge, and inspiration are key tenets in my core teaching philosophy. The best learning comes from students who are involved and motivated in their own learning process. I recognize that learning in the classroom is not only my responsibility; rather, I empower and expect students to share a mutual responsibility in creating an engaging and collaborative environment. The classroom, both in-person and virtual, is a space that should be an ecosystem within which all participants, both instructor and students, engage in knowledge creation and this requires us to establish a learning community that encourages diverse perspectives and critical thought.
