I am interested in serving as an Instructional Design Curriculum Education Manager because my career experiences reflect an appreciation of the I CARE values, as described in the Rush University Medical Center Service Agreement. Specifically, my objective as an educator is to guide students in their mastery of content knowledge as well as facilitate opportunities to connect theoretical scholarship and thought with sound practical applications through interdisciplinary experiences on the local and global scale. As such, my philosophy of supporting faculty teaching hinges upon helping faculty facilitate student centered learning through activities that encourage student collaboration, critical thinking, innovation, creativity, educational entrepreneurship and a life-­long zeal for the process of learning, improving human performance and excellence. I seek to promote, as well as train others to foster respectful learning communities by encouraging critical engagement with ideas, beliefs, and pedagogies in the local, national and global contexts. My experiences in the classroom as well as in faculty development have helped inform my research in the area of the scholarship of teaching and learning.
