Teaching Methods

I pursued a career path in adult training and education to be part of the movement to enhance people’s lives and to inspire positive changes in society by broadening their points of view.  My most significant inspiration in teaching methods come from authors Davis and Arend, who identified the need for a paradigm shift in the way we teach and in the way we prepare to teach.  “Learning is not primarily auditory but multisensory.” (p.256).  Indeed, I believe learning is most stimulating when it wakes the senses.  As a result, I incorporate teaching components that solicit sensory dimensions.  Learn more about my teaching philosophy
