What do I teach?
My Teaching Philosophy
I consider myself to be a social constructivist and believe that knowledge is actively constructed by the learner and intermixed with his or her prior knowledge and experience. I also believe that we learn best when we have a chance to share what we are learning with others and receive feedback.

How do I teach?
I employ active learning techniques in my teaching. I give students opportunities for sharing, collaborating, and connecting through experiences. I like to pair this with self-reflective opportunities; as it is beneficial to the learning process to have time to reflect on what we are learning.
Students learn best by becoming involved. I believe in involving students in doing things and thinking about the things they are doing.

Why am I interested in Instructional Design?
I am interested in Instructional Design because it can provide a helpful structure or frame for the creation and implementation of sound instructional strategies.
Instructional Design can serve as a framework for re-designing lessons that integrate active learning techniques.
If you take the time to think critically about how you are designing and developing your instruction you have a much better chance of meeting your students' needs and increasing their learning.

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.
