Prof. Cynthia Mohr SRISA Adjunct Professor of Design
“ I consider myself to be a facilitator and try to create a learning environment that encourages the development of critical thinking and communication skills. I do not believe in merely transferring the information, instead we should challenge the student to discover the subject. We can no longer simply “lecture,” we must develop new methods of delivery that expose our students to the subject and how it relates to their world, both professionally and personally.
