Areas Of Expertise

Q.  Please describe your teaching philosophy.

A.  Over the past 15 years, I have developed a teaching approach that encourages active learning.  Guided by adult learning theory, I allow students to interact with the course concepts in a meaningful way, as the research clearly illustrates that deep learning occurs through analyzing, evaluating, and creating.
