Only after becoming engaged with and a part of the very community and activities I study am I able to understand ways in which rhetoric (material-discursive phenomena) does work. In the classroom, therefore, I design learning experiences for students based on the philosophy that we learn best by doing.

That is, I aim to facilitate a supportive classroom environment that encourages experiential, problem-based, collaborative learning.
