  • Philosophy

    The teaching philosophy that motivates the deconstruction and renovation of traditional learning is one that blends behaviorism, constructivism, cognitivism, and transformation. This eclectic approach permits the versatility to meet students where they are at in their learning journey. The self-directedness that is the cornerstone of constructivism encourages the students to take charge of their learning and build their own avenues for learning. Transformation is the ultimate ascension into independent practitioners prepared to make their own mark in the practice of physical therapy.
