Education Philosophy
I  am a strong proponent of student-centered, active classrooms as opposed to teacher-centered, passive classrooms. In addition, in my experience as a physics and math undergraduate, the biggest leap in understanding did not come from note-taking and passive listening, but through activities and collaborative learning on problem sets.
