My pedagogical stance has evolved through full engagement with my students and ongoing participation in faculty development. We are all teachers and students in intellectual development. As students, we are responsible for trusting the curriculum and following the course rubrics. As teachers, we are facilitators responsible for providing the necessary tools and environment for student learning. Combined, these approaches result in students who feel their intellectual diversity is respected, who apply critical thinking to learning objectives, and who are excited about the overall learning experience. I applied my philosophy in physical environments since 2000, and online platforms successfully. I have taught online for over nine years and see this platform as the wave of the future for adult learners.
