Personal recognition and support for curriculum development work within the School of Health and Exercise Sciences.”


Teaching Passions and Philosophy

“My teaching is rooted in an apprenticeship model – that is, students should become skilled practitioners and this grows from modeled expertise in the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be successful learners and professionals. To support this, I have an active learning environment with many opportunities to practice skills from simple to complex and allow for unique experiences to drive students’ individual learning. I strive to support students to build knowledge networks that allow them to link individual facts into larger, more complex, real-world problem-solving processes.

As a course instructor in Health and Exercise Sciences, the best “textbook/tool” for learning is moving one’s body!”
