Why I Teach
My approach to teaching provides many opportunities for students to confront and challenge their own conceptions about the course material. I guide learners to a critical examination of current issues and learning through discussion and practical application. Self-reflection and ongoing assessment also play a role in my teaching.
In addition, my profession provides me the chance to lead passionate and committed students into one of the most demanding and fulfilling fields around. This is why I teach.
