Teaching philosophy: Learning is social. We learn best with and from each other. I believe in constructivist principles in that learning is facilitated by solving authentic problems. Learners need to make connections between new material and what they already know. Knowledge and meaning is individually and socially constructed. Individuals learn best when allowed to determine what and how they will learn.
