Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is that of active
learning. I attempt to ask questions and provoke discussion that
provides students with a working knowledge of a subject.
Knowing answers to questions is not enough, a student must be able to
find answers and judge their quality. I do this by emphasizing open
ended questions embedded in readings and lectures that are subject to
debate using the evidence at hand.
Weekly Assignments - Place experiential assignments
in the drop box designated for that assignment by Sunday night, answers must
