An essential part of my teaching philosophy is that students should learn not only the theoretical basis of anthropology and primatology, but also what is happening now and how they can fit into the future of the discipline. Using active engagement through hands on activities both inside and outside of the classroom, students can get a better sense of what it means to be an anthropologist. Another part of my philosophy is to ensure that students know how to appropriately communicate and share their work. The most rewarding course assignments include poster presentations, and abstract/grant writing. These assessments are great opportunities to complete practical tasks and aides in student employability and in creating successful academics.
