We can learn to see each other and see ourselves in each other and recognize that human beings are more alike than we are unalike” Dr. Maya Angelou

He strives to teach his students to see, honor, and connect with the humanity within themselves and among others. As an instructor, he recognizes the importance of planning, researching, organizing, and delivering presentations. However, he also believes that communication has the potential to shape our world through understanding and connecting with others. Through effective communication, we engage in civic conversations and decision-making processes by voicing, listening, and responding to information, experiences, and emotions. As communicators, we have the responsibility to take ethical stances in relation to ourselves, others, communities, and social issues. His teaching philosophy is grounded in studying and practicing communication as a social responsibility that embodies concern for others, attention to words and nonverbal expressions, and a commitment to understanding the multiple perspectives of issues.

His approach to teaching is to merge these elements while balancing the needs of the individual and the group. He strives to create practical and constructive learning environments that allow for the use of dialogue as a tool to work through the challenges and uncertainties inherent in creative experimentation. This requires patience and a willingness to embrace the messiness that often accompanies the learning process.
