My belief in the convergence of academic inquiry and professional practice forms the cornerstone of my pedagogical approach. The courses I teach emphasize a strong connection between knowledge acquired in the classroom and professional activities. Consequently, the following principles comprise the foundation of my teaching philosophy: participatory experience, experiential learning, the customization of assignments, making coursework count beyond the classroom, academia-field feedback, and increasing the visibility of the LIS profession on campus through student work.
My approach to teaching and relationshp with students are greatly inspired by the humanistic person-centered approach developed by Carl Rogers and the principles of learner-centered education.
In Spring 2013, I won the first Master of Information Student Council Outstanding Instructor Award at the Faculty of Information.
