Teaching

Philosophy (briefly)

My first go at teaching was in 2013, as a first-year master's student. Since then, I have dedicated myself to improving my skills as an instructor and communicator. As a teacher, my priority is to train students to think critically to solve a problem. Lecturing can sometimes veer into "info-dumping", so I make a point of identifying my students' own learning priorities and making explicit connections between lecture material and their interests. This empowers students to feel a sense of ownership over scietific knowledge and creates a space where their own interests are valued.
