Great teaching at the college level is based upon providing students with inspiration, not just information. I constantly pose questions from the latest scientific research and also help students make practical connections to everyday experiences to enhance course material. The idea is to inspire students to imagine what is possible by teaching them to think for themselves as well as view the world around them in an informed way.
