Teaching

My teaching philosophy is based on a constructivist notion of learning, where students are actively encouraged to contribute to discussions and learning activities. As a teacher I want my role to be supportive and interactive. I use several strategies and tactics to stimulate discussion so everyone is willing to share perspectives, ideas and experiences.
