My teaching philosophy is based on my own experiences while taking philosophy classes, supplemented with pedagogical methods and tools that I've learned in formal training at both the University of Colorado and the University of Michigan. Below is some basic information on courses I have been involved with; for a fuller teaching dossier, please contact me directly.
