My main objective in teaching, graduate student supervision, and mentoring is to accompany students in develop a critical and reflexive social work identity anchored in a solid understanding of our socio-historic and socio-political systems and contexts.
My educational approach is based on social principles and values:
* * * *
I use a collaborative learning and teaching approach in the classroom that, I hope, brings social work theories and social intervention to life.
By using intervention skills such as clarification, resonance, confrontation, and that of group intervention such as the constitution of the group as a whole, the enrichment of communication and the promotion of the development of a positive climate, I create a classroom environment that builds on students' existing knowledge, experiences and social identities to support and inspire students to push their learning boundaries, fostering the development of critical thinking.
My approach is based on the principle of praxis - that is, the interaction of theories, practice framework and critical thinking in creating transformative action. In praxis, we need to deliberate the appropriate and creative actions or methods in a particular situation.
