Teaching Philosophy

My identity and values as an educator have been shaped through many impactful experiences with students and colleagues over the past four years, and I look forward to continuing to develop my teaching philosophy and practice.
I believe that in order to be effective learning must be active, collaborative and reflexive - that students learn by doing.
I believe in creating learning experiences that allow students to integrate their own experiences into challenging theoretical frameworks - that students learn by engaging. But most importantly, I believe that through personal engagement and a commitment to individual student growth, I can help students grow as independent learners - that students learn when challenged and supported.

Statement of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Through my academic and professional work, I have been committed to respecting, honouring, and celebrating the diversity in my community that includes, but is not limited to, race, ethnicity, national origin, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, ability, socio-economic status, class, neurodiversity, and religion.
In this spirit, I streamline equity, diversity and inclusion throughout my teaching, as well as research and capacity building projects.
