Educational Philosophy: I believe teaching is facilitating discovery, to help students discover knowledge in ways that are meaningful and interesting to them. I believe in co-constructed learning between student and teacher whenever possible and that as a teacher I am there to guide, to assist, and to occasionally point out the pitfalls in the path.
I am interested in critical inquiry into just about any subject, and I try to share with my students the benefits of asking the meaning of words, phrases and visual images they hear and see everyday. As a student, I learned to see canonical literature in modern situation comedies, to see the formulaic nature of the evening news, and pay attention to the details in advertising. As a teacher, I attempt to share these insights and to encourage my students to ask “what does it mean” and “what would have to be true for x to happen”. I encourage them to see beyond the immediate image or sound, to be a more attentive consumer of information.
I try to help my students anticipate reception of their written work in various audiences. Whether in the academy or in the world of work, students participate in several different discourse communities. I believe it is my job to help them identify those communities, and to understand the “rules” of discourse in them. I try to show how a text produced for a friend as e-mail may not be well received as an academic paper, or how business formality differs from academic formality. At the same time, I encourage them to preserve their own voice in their writing, no matter the form. I believe if I can show them that there are differences, and help them understand how the texts they produce might be received, I can help them prepare for success in whatever community they inhabit.
