"For me, the what, where, when and why of my teaching matters far, far less than the how of my students' learning. As such, I constantly challenge myself to engage students not only in course-specific content but, more importantly, in the transformative act of learning to learn. Bringing to conscious awareness the often unconscious processes by which we construct knowledge is the greatest contribution that I can make in any student's intellectual and personal development."
