Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy focuses on student learning effectiveness, and stems from my training and teaching experiences. My goal is for students to develop good learning habits and learn to think independently. As such, I acknowledge the skills and knowledge required for jobs in their discipline, vary my assessment methods, use active learning, organize my course intentionally, and in the future I plan to use mentoring techniques.
