Teaching

I intend to train the next generation of restoration ecologists, natural resource managers, and human-environment researchers. My teaching is based on the philosophy that each student has their own learning style, be it through reading the written word, working with numbers, listening and interacting, or doing and experiencing. Effective classes include a diversity of approaches to engage all students, including lecture material, experiential field learning, quantitative lab work, computer animations and demonstrations, and interactive group discussions or Real Life Links. I subscribe to the Montessori idea that the only thing students need to learn is how to learn. A teacher’s role is to create an environment that facilitates learning and triggers the innate passion that resides within us all.
