Pedagogy

Young people possess unique qualities – a keen perception for social justice, a desire to contribute positively to the world, and an untarnished view of political possibility – qualities sorely needed in today’s ages of uncertainty and rancor. Aside from developing adults capable of contributing to the work force or scoring high on tests, what will help humanity flourish are moral agents of change acting for the benefit of all, especially those at the margins. Fostering a moral compass (and a desire to act) in my students happens through foregrounding inter- and trans-disciplinarity, challenging confines of dominant conceptualizations of epistemology, and bringing students through cycles of thinking and doing (or praxis).
