Nigel Davies

Nigel has lived and taught in Australia, UK and obviously the United States. His degrees are in teacher education, health and kinesiology. At his previous university he was the Director of the University Wellness Program and currently works in Hubbard Programs for Faculty Excellence. He and his wife ‘dabble’ in farming, raising chickens, goats, turkeys and cattle, growing fruits and vegetables using organic, humane and sustainable practices. He is passionate about the environment and the ‘Buy Local’ movement. His courses are student centered, emphasizing choice, critical and logical thinking, teamwork, technology, analysis, debate and discussion. He takes his teaching responsibilities seriously and expects his students to be active, proactive and productive participants. When not working or ‘dabbling’ Nigel enjoys mountain biking, hiking, kayaking and travelling.
