Pedagogical Notes

My approach to teaching is co-creative and transformative.

In a co-creative approach, each student’s life history and work trajectory shapes the space for learning.

The goals of my teaching approach are to encourage self-awareness, ability to listen deeply and well, and the intellectual discipline to critique power in a calm and assertive manner.
