I view the teaching/learning encounter as the opportunity to engage material in different and innovative ways. I am open to the use of diverse teaching approaches and resources as conduits to assist students in engaging course material more effectively. This serves as a means to help them to interact with texts in their ancient and historical and cultural contexts and to make critical connections between the Biblical text and the present day.
