About Me

Philosophy in Education

Problem Based Learning

Students learn by doing, solving problems, motivated by challenges to work with others to solve problems. PBL is an incredible motivator.


Collaborative Learning

No one is an island.  Success is found in team work.  PBL realizes its full potential when students work together and with their instructors.


Inverted Classroom

The inverted classroom puts learning first.  School becomes an active place not for lectures, but activities and projects.


Pedagogy not Technology First

The most important principle I took from my graduate coursework through UBC was “its about the learning.”
