Empty Classroom

Teaching

Approach

I earned my first undergraduate degree in a self-designed, experiential learning-based program with the motto: the journey IS the destination. That experience fundamentally shaped the way I think about teaching and learning. 

 

I see learning as a collaborative journey in which the student(s) and I learn together, and both have specific roles and responsibilities to make it to our destination successfully and on time. 

In my classrooms, I work to:

  • co-construct learning environments in collaboration with students that are built on clear expectations and shared responsibility for teaching and learning

  • incorporate multiple methods for student to learn new information (text, video, audio, etc.)

  • assess student learning in an ongoing manner using a variety of techniques including audience polls, small and large-group discussion, case studies, reflection and low-stakes quizzes

  • create an inclusive classroom that considers the diverse identities of the learners in the room as well as the community members that the (future) nurses are delivering care to

  • provide clear expectations about assignment criteria well in advance of the deadline and use a detailed rubric for grading

“This clinical experience has been extremely informative about mental health and mental health nursing, mostly due to my clinical instructor who is a natural educator and who goes the extra mile to supplement what we are learning in lecture.... I think that everything that I have learned in this clinical will be very valuable to my future practice as a nurse, no matter what I specialize in.”
