TEACHING

Our community is empowered by its diversity, and I believe that teaching is a fundamental mechanism of the community development within the discipline. To enable the strength of diversity we need to learn to successfully communicate, and thus, we need to pay special attention not only to what we communicate, but also to how we communicate this knowledge.
