Philosophy (Sort-of)

(A more formal teaching philosophy is in the works.) I strongly believe in a reflective approach to teaching and learning, and I strive to do the following in each of my classes and workshops:

  • Create a safe and welcoming environment for all students.
  • Focus on skills that reach beyond the particular library tool or database.
  • Encourage critical evaluation of all information sources.
  • Engage students through active learning methods.
  • Facilitate open discussion surrounding traditional and problematic information structures and access.
