I guide students to discover their own identities as learners—independently and collaboratively. I create inclusive, collaborative learning environments that value all students as contributors to the development of our knowledge and skills. Projects in my courses, whether they be papers, projects, or performances, are always for real audiences, to accomplish real goals. I emphasize that student work is more than a final product, but also a process of discovery, testing new ideas. No matter the course I teach, I encourage students to establish their own learning objectives within the structures of the course that help them meet their personal and professional goals.
