Teaching values founded on personal development lead me to enact a mentoring-based philosophy I call "networked learning."

Individuals in my classes experience learning and personal growth through three channels: (1) among peers through small-group activities online and in-person, (2) with me as instructor, and (3) internally as they learn skills to challenge and build themselves across the lifespan. The desired outcome is for our future leaders to leave my class steps closer to becoming independent, higher-order thinkers who consume information in a digital world and are comfortable with "why" questions.
