I teach three courses within the Environmental Governance track at NYU:
My teaching philosophy is to provoke and guide students towards self-discovery, i.e. to come to their own realizations and learn how to acquire knowledge for themselves. I focus on teaching critical thinking skills and developing students’ understanding of concepts and appreciation of complexity.
Rather than be seen as a ‘sage on the stage’, I want my students to view me as a collaborator and enabler of their own learning process.
I also mentor NYU Environmental Studies seniors for their final thesis projects.
