In brief, my personal teaching philosophy is very structured (but flexible) and focused on creating very strong, motivating, interactive, and innovative holistic student learning and development through the use of critical inquiry thought and provocative thinking.
I strongly believe in teaching all student learners how to link theory to practice and taking the appropriate ethical action (problem solving) at all levels (psychological, emotional, physical, and spiritual) of their individual personal education.
I strive to hold students personally responsible but at the same time empowering them to be accountable for their own individual learning by requiring students to create their own learning expectations, competencies, goals, and objectives at the beginning of each academic course and assessing their progress and completion throughout the semester. I love to take risks in the classroom as well as use all forms of social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, etc.).
My teaching style involves very interactive and equal 10-15 minute segments broken down into lectures, large and small scale discussions, peer education, individual and group presentations and projects, using top notch technology and media. I also highly like to require students to complete many of their assignments outside the classroom on campus and outside in “the real world,” through service learning, field trips, and internships as well as incorporating diversity and multiculturalism into all learning experiences.
And lastly, I truly enjoy challenging, learning from students, and teaching students at all levels, as well as watching their personal growth and development.
