I like teaching because I like to inspire.
Inspire to think about language.
Inspire to think.
Inspire to be inspired.
Teaching is not restricted to the class-room.
Teaching happens with every interaction. If we let ourselves be inspired by the thoughts of others we can learn.
At UBC I taught a variety of undergradaute and graduate courses including:
Introduction to linguistics
Acquisition of syntax
I have taught courses following the “flipped classroom model”. This initiative was in response to a need for a change in teaching methods, given the changing student population as well as the change in the kind of information that is available to students.
In this context I have produced a series of videos to accompany my Introduction to linguisitcs course.
