Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy emphasizes accessibility without compromising the integrity of the material. I use a wide variety of presentation methods including lectures, small and large group discussions, multimedia presentations, technology resources, modes of learning, individual and expert panels, academic texts articles, and other mainstream publications. I often structure my courses to include lecture and group discussion/applied exercises to help students consolidate understanding and reinforce through shared experiences. My approach to student evaluation is based on a student’s performance in multiple contexts depending on class size.
