My overall teaching philosphy revolves around the notion that people learn content and competencies most thoroughly and with the best long-term retention when they interact with a topic using as many senses as possible. That means that I try to deploy a wide range of ways for students to learn. I want students to see, hear, speak, and touch content. I also want to engage students directly and as individually as possible, so I actually study each student with the informaiton from their academic records and through my interactions with them; this enables me to customize my interactions with them as much as possible. I see my role as more of a shepherd of learning than somehow a person who uploads content into a student's brain. Teaching does not work that way in my experience. I curate extensive content and experiences for students to interact with.
