My teaching is guided by an understanding of learning as facilitated by active engagement with, and personal connection to, new material. As an instructor, I seek to create engaged learning experiences for my students through fostering classroom participation; provoking curiosity and promoting critical thinking; and creating opportunities for students’ connection to the course material, both in and outside of the classroom.
