Inspired by feminist and critical pedagogies, I take to heart that learning is a collective endeavor in which we interrogate and co-produce how we understand our world. I see myself as a facilitator who enables a space for students to think collaboratively while tracing their part in the world and sharpening the tools that empower them to transform it.
My pedagogy is driven by three main objectives:
- First, to encourage students’ curiosity and enthusiasm for learning through different standpoints.
- To train students in analytical inquiry and debate as useful intellectual and life skills.
- To foster a supportive, inclusive, learning environment.
Overall, my pedagogical approach aims to cultivate in my students the interest and enthusiasm to learn about present issues as well as the skills and tools to question and reimagine alternative possibilities.
