Teaching means empowering others to reach their goals.

My teaching philosophy is based on the idea of Empowerment. Every student is different and has distinct, and very personal goals and motivations. Some are looking for tools to implement change as practitioners, others are eager to develop a career as researchers or seek to grow personally.

The key to lecture such a diverse and challenging group is to involve students as much as possible. Students need to be aware that it is they themselves who are responsible to reach their own goals. In return, it is my task to direct them to the necessary tools to acquire the knowledge and skills they strive for.
