P. Elizabeth Pate, Ph.D.


Department of Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching

UT San Antonio

As a teacher, I describe myself as a progressive educator. Systems thinking, democratic education and service-learning serve as the framework influencing my teaching (and integrated research and service). In my classes, there is intentional collaboration between the students and myself regarding what, why and how learning occurs.
