Student retention and engagement in a changing educational paradigm.

What is your teaching style?

My classroom teaching style is very student centered, providing students with an environment designed to increase student engagement and experiential learning. Assignments are designed to have real world application and I encourage students to apply critical thinking skills that will prepare them to contribute in a world marked by open or unscripted problems.
