I am always trying to acquire more experience, insight and skills to apply to teaching. This is a constant challenge in an institutional setting which rewards research much more than teaching, but I have found opportunities both inside and outside the classroom to develop my pedagogical skills. The Sheridan Center at Brown University and the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning at Lehigh University provided me with hands-on learning and a great deal of wisdom in this regard. You can read more about my teaching philosophy and teaching experience on the following pages:
