MY TEACHING

How can I improve student attention and learning outcomes?

PHILOSOPHY

I may teach at a Research I University, but I am not a researcher.
Teaching is my second career, following a first career working in communication-related roles in the nonprofit sector.

 

When I transitioned to higher education,  I intuitively developed a
teaching philosophy that integrated the entrepreneurial spirit I had
developed while working to advance nonprofit missions using limited resources.

 

As an educator, I believe that my teaching should follow three tenets
related to technology:

   1.  Have practical application outside the classroom

   2. Meet students where they are

   3. Develop critical thinking skills

 

To learn more about how my previous career as a leader in the
nonprofit sector informed this philosophy, please watch the
