I design each course with these core values/principles in mind:

  • Empathy is the root of creativity and progress.
  • Co-creation & teamwork over individualistic competition.
  • Reflection; establishing a pattern of continuous reflection leads to authentic learning, innovation, and resilience in the midst of change.
  • Iterative feedback over “right/wrong” assessment.
  • Multiple and intersectional learning styles & types of intelligence.
