Teaching

Learning should be fun, meaningful, and co-created with learners (students). Spaces for learning should embody the practices and places we hope to create in our professional work. For me, this means valuing life experiences and practice wisdom, trying on co-determination, committing to practicing anti-racism and anti-colonialism in ways of gathering, talking, and working, and a steadfast ethos of care, inter-dependency, and community. It is premised, as much as possible in institutional forms of education or social work practice, on an ethic of invitation: what kind of world do we want to create as we gather in this moment? How do you want to be part of it?

I see teaching as deeply interconnected with research and engagement. I seek to co-create inclusive classroom spaces as communities of practice engaged in active, experiential, and hybrid learning; that value lifelong and lifewide learning experiences; and that embody an ethic of care for my students as colleagues, as intellectuals and activists, and as developing professionals. Since there is no teaching without learning (a lesson I’ve learned from @IleneDawn), learning is the primary focus in my classrooms.
