Lisa Tromovitch
Teaching Philosophy

I prefer a facilitative teaching style. In the arts there are myriad creative problems to solve but, in most cases, no one right solution. Encouraging students to find their own solutions exercises both the intellect and creative imagination, and strengthens leadership skills.

A student's personal, cultural and educational background will have a bearing on the creative problem-solving. Peer-to-peer teaching has its place in such an environment. My classes are decidedly experiential in nature, and the development of specific skills is a large part of the learning outcome.
