I structure my courses using problem-based learning approaches. I maximize participant engagement through case studies, group projects and activities that link with the topic at hand. To the extent possible, I run classrooms like workshops interchanging short lectures with simulations that train learners to realize common goals via team work and systems thinking.

In my teaching I employ practices that connect concepts and theories with real world examples. I bring diverse work experiences from applied projects into case studies in the classroom.
