Beatriz's Teaching Style & Approach

How do you present material to students?

My course has a conversational tone -- I believe knowledge is always a work in progress and that to learn, we need to cultivate an open and inquisitive mind.

How you interact and work with students?

I am open and glad to interact with students.
