What students can expect from me

I believe that everything that is meaningful in life is built through connections and relationships. Nothing is learned or accomplished in a vacuum. Students can expect to create connections with the material, with their prior knowledge, and with their lived experiences. Students can expect to build relationships with each other and with me. I believe that we can build meaningful online communities in a relatively short amount of time when all members feel valued, respected, and safe. Students can expect me to support them and to promote these values during the course and beyond.
