Teaching Philosophy

The goal of economics is to make sense of the social world around us. I believe the best way to teach economics is through applied real world examples in an active environment. My pedagogical approach is to challenge students by asking questions and utilize classroom activities that reiterate the learning objective. This is especially important when teaching econometrics or statistics – the power of these tools is not visible in theory, but through application. Students also learn better when learning objectives are repeated in different ways – data collecting at the lecture, interactive websites, short videos at home, writing reports and problems sets. Learning is best applied in a community of active and engaged students. My goal as a teacher is to foster this kind of environment.
