Dr. Urquhart has taught live, hybrid and fully online courses in the disciplines of Nursing and Psychology for over 20 years. Her teaching philosophy reflects her interests in collaborative authorship and constructivist theory where the learner is seen as an individual who makes decisions about his or her educational needs through active engagement in the learning process; the teaching methods support students’ ability to be self-directed within the educational process; and where learning is a lifelong dynamic process involving interactions among the learner, instructor, and the environment with interactions that are designed to provide the opportunity for each learner to advance toward their professional goals.
