My goal is to invest in each individual student and ensure that they experience a liberal education by reading, thinking and writing.  We read carefully selected material, both from current academic literature, primary sources, and classic texts; we think about it carefully in class discussion, whether walking through the story or weighing the opposing arguments, considering diverse interpretations with fairness and charity toward all points of view, and judging each idea for its logical consistency; and my students write clear, well-argued, persuasive prose based on their original research based on my own help with regular tutorials and essays drafts.  I've always chosen class topics based on the needs of my university, and I've modified my pedagogy and assessment to meet the expectations of the department.  I owe a special thanks to my colleagues who have offered feedback and guidance over the years.  Updated July, 2024.
