PEDAGOGY

“…from the schoolmaster the pupil learns something that the schoolmaster does not know himself.” Jacques Rancière, The Emancipated Spectator

I always return to this citation to encapsulate the spirit of teaching, which to me is about opening an accessible space for the exchange of ideas. My intentions for classrooms, fostering relationships, and sharing knowledges do not necessarily seek consensus. Instead, my pedagogical goal is to offer various registers for participation, from active listening and direct conversation to projects that require embodied practice and team workshops.
