Teaching Philosophy

Inspired by the book Drive by Daniel Pink, my teaching philosophy focuses on three main concepts.

AUTONOMY Recognize that learners want the ability to direct their own lives, and structure courses in a way where students are empowered to take responsibility for their own learning.

MASTERY Ensure that courses are relevant, recognizing that students are more likely to want to master something that actually matters to them.

PURPOSE Understand that students want to be a part of something bigger than themselves. Leverage peer work, and where possible larger
projects to instill a sense of purpose and responsibility.
