What is your teaching philosophy for Lasell courses?
"I believe in teaching to help students construct knowledge. This entails making statements and asking directive and thought-shaping questions so that students, through their answers and feedback, are able to construct what they know and learn. Students are best served by an education that allows them to build upon what they know by anchoring their previous knowledge and experience to new information. Making these connections goes a long way in retaining what they have learned and then applying it to everyday situations. This also gives them a foundation and structure to use to be life-long learners."
