The classroom is a forum where we can deepen our understanding of concepts and of our own personal convictions through dialogue with one another. With this in mind, I adopt a fundamentally Socratic approach to lectures regardless of class size. Likewise, I continually strive to better incorporate peer instruction methods in order to facilitate active learning.

I am generally happy to share syllabi for past courses if contacted by email.
