"I feel that the primary role of a teacher is to create an environment in which each student can learn to his or her maximum potential. While providing thought-provoking and demanding lectures is an important element of this environment, the real foundation of my approach to teaching is the belief that it is absolutely essential for students to become active participants in the learning process. By challenging students to take intellectual ownership of a large part of their own training, they develop a much deeper and more personal attachment to the process by which knowledge is created."
