My core belief is that students should be able to apply what they have learned to everyday situations, and develop the ability to see sociological principles at work within their everyday lives. I want students to develop a more complex and sophisticated way of understanding the social world in which they live, having an ability to think sociologically well after they have graduated from our University.
Classroom environments should be encouraging, engaging, and participatory. Students need to identify not only with the material, but to feel confident that their instructor cares about their intellectual advancement and is always approachable. The climate of the classroom should always foster student feedback and exploration, where students feel comfortable and open.
