Students are the future of conservation and our global society. I integrate research into my teaching to achieve three interwoven goals:
Provide my students with a solid knowledge base
Empower them to identify and pursue the questions that excite them
Challenge them to develop transferable skills which will be valuable in the job market.
I structure my courses to provide personalized learning and increasing academic freedom over time. In doing so, I encourage my students to take a leadership role in their own learning.
