Knowledge is a process that occurs inside and outside of the classroom. I want to give students the opportunity to synthesize the information they have gained from course readings, combine it with their own experiences, and apply it to their coursework. To this end, I encourage my students to engage in collaborative learning and apply the basic principles that I teach them to their own worlds.
