My teaching philosophy is anchored on principles of active learning and student engagement. I believe that students learn best when interactions with content, peers, and the professor are consistent and meaningful. My research interests are active learning in online environments through course design and integrative technology as well as faculty development in higher education assessment. I have served in ministry positions leading education and discipleship programs, and I believe that effective teaching principles are applicable far outside formal classroom environments. I have over ten years of experience in teaching, course design, and coordination of K-12 and higher education programs.
