My primary role as an educator is to create a student-centered learning environment that facilitates the learner's discovery and acquisition of new knowledge, their development of skills of critical thinking, and their acquisition of strategies for lifelong, self-directed learning. This educational philosophy requires collaboration across disciplines, continuous assessment of current and innovative educational strategies, the embracing of change to achieve improvements in educational outcomes and the sharing with peers of best educational practices and experiences.
