"Teaching is the most stimulating, rewarding activity possible. The ways that students engage with ideas and take established concepts and then do something new with them provides a continuous source of energy and inspiration. Teaching engaged students requires a constant questioning and rethinking of one's assumptions and opens up new ways of looking at and encountering our shared world."

Michael Betancourt | Motion media design professor
