Interviews about My Teaching

The University of Waterloo Arts Department recently interviewed me about my teaching strategies. I discuss some of my strategies for fostering student engagement and the importance of maintaining an open dialogue with students.

I also discuss some of my work with the Centre for Teaching Excellence and science outreach initiatives like Let's Talk Science.

I was interviewed by the University of Waterloo Centre for Teaching Excellence after I won the Certificate of University Teaching Award.

In the interview, I discuss how I developed a workshop to help fellow educators use empirically supported strategies to encourage critical thinking in their students.

I also talk about the importance of self-reflection in teaching, and offer some advice for graduate students looking to develop their teaching expertise.

Science Outreach Publications

Let's Talk Science is an award-winning science outreach initiative. I teamed up with them to write an article about face perception for a teenage audience.

The article talks about how the brain recognizes faces and objects, and how face perception differs from object perception. It also discusses how our expertise with faces can lead to phenomena like paredollia - seeing faces where we shouldn't, like in this car front.
