While my teaching philosophy permeates this portfolio, here is a current statement of that philosophy.

You can view the sections of my portfolio by clicking on the menu items in the Navigation section on the left side of the page. Each of these items (Summary Documents, Scholarship, Teaching, Service, and Application) opens sub-menus, which in turn link to additional menus or various artifacts.

My interests include

  • Communication across the curriculum (CAC)
  • Contexts and situated learning
  • School-to-workplace (-to-school) transitions
  • Social psychology
  • Cultural-historical activity theory
