The Concept: Learning Community
The learning community is central to my teaching. I do my best to encourage students to work together, prepare thoroughly for class, and recognize that each of us has something to contribute and much to learn from each person in the community. For me, it is about gathering around a subject, concepts, and issues to explore them together in ways that go beyond what an individual can accomplish. My students and I have been particularly successful in creating a learning community our Environmental Law and Sustainability for Business class.
