Beyond striving to ensure that students learn the fundamental content of the courses I teach. My objectives as a university teacher are to foster your critical thinking skills, facilitate the acquisition of lifelong learning skills, and to prepare all students to function as highly skilled and extremely competent in their field of study.
Furthermore, my overall teaching philosophy is that active student learning, strongly influences student-learning outcomes, and assessment procedures strongly influence student acquisition of knowledge.
My emphasis in teaching is on learning. My teaching goal is to facilitate learning and I believe that teaching plays a major role in that.
Learning is primarily the student's responsibility, whereas teaching is my responsibility. My emphasis is on helping the student to learn, rather than just dispensing my knowledge to them. I am there to “light their candle," not just "fill their bucket.”
Let me see if I can help you.
