Teaching

In my courses, I strive to be a “learning facilitator” and aim for my students to develop the skills that will empower them to function to their fullest as creative, independent and critical individuals for society’s benefit and their own. I believe that learning is better accomplished in a collaborative and cooperative environment through a combination of inductive and deductive approaches
