About Teaching and CourseSource
I have over fifteen years of experience teaching in a college environment mostly at the undergraduate level. Although I teach both lower- and upper-division courses, I particularly enjoy freshman-level, introductory classes. I believe that it is important to create an open and supportive classroom environment so that students feel comfortable taking risks and challenging themselves. I am a strong proponent of active learning methods and use a variety of pedagogical techniques to encourage discussion and interaction in the classroom. For example, I have recently been experimenting with a flipped-classroom approach.
I am excited by the goals of and philosophy behind CourseSource and wanted to contribute to its success.
