Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is best understood as a philosophy of learning. I strive to create student-centered, engaging, creative, and collaborative environments while exposing students to contemporary issues and problems for which understanding of course content is meaningful. I strive to make my courses relevant for learners in the 21st century.
