Educational Philosophy: The facilitator's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, dialogues, examinations, and web sites. The facilitator will engage each learner in what is referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions.
