As a teacher, I aim to cultivate enthusiasm about philosophical questions and to get all students involved in the dialogue of the class. To these ends, I use a variety of methods, including asking students to connect course content to public debates in the news, to craft blog posts about ideas that interest them, to compete in classroom games (using programs like FlipQuiz and Menti), and to participate in traditional classroom discussion.
My general approach to teaching is greatly influenced by James Lang's Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning, a book that I heartily recommend. It is available here.
