My current teaching is focused on study abroad and Honors programs, with a content emphasis on European urbanization.

As technology changes the landscape of the global economy and the practices of businesses and governments, the demand for graduates who possess superior analytical, critical-thinking, management, and communication skills and who excel at abstract and computational thinking continues to grow. Preparing students for this new horizon requires pedagogical models that spark curiosity, facilitate creative thinking, and develop the tools for effective communication. These models must be rigorous but not constraining, involving ‘hands-on’ as well as ‘minds-on’ approaches to problem definition and problem-solving.
