As a member of the Teaching and Learning team, I support and empower instructors to create, explore, build capacity, and define their own path in their teaching practice.  I love learning about the unique challenges and opportunities of teaching in different disciplines and contexts, and exploring ideas to better support student learning.  I hope that, by creating opportunities for sharing, dialogue and relationship building, we can foster a culture of teaching and learning that celebrates continuous growth and includes many ways of knowing, doing, and being.
