As a university professor, I feel that my greatest responsibility and challenge in the classroom is to create the conditions that awaken student curiosity and motivation so that they take ownership of the material. ┬áIn so doing, students tend to think more critically about important scientific questions, and develop the skills to evaluate — and ultimate create — their own evidence-based arguments to address complex issues in science and society.

Teaching and learning topics/strategies of interest:

  1. Cultural encounters
  2. Concept mapping
  3. Peer-to-peer discussion
