Philosophy

In my courses, I aim to teach important subject matter and have students practice important skills.  In class, I blend lecture, discussion, and small group activities, including simulations and role-playing games.  In course work, I assign short writing exercises and oral presentations that mirror the tasks students will likely face in the workplace.
