About Konye

Dear prospective student:

I teach at Indiana University Purdue University and at Ivy tech Community College. I have taught speech communication, interpersonal communication, and independent studies. My teaching approach is interactive, holistic, and comprehensive. Ultimately, I try to adapt learning to the student. I have studied, taught, and written essays on philosophy, sociology, communication, history, and political science. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, and researching. I am a regular correspondent and commentator on current events, political, and African affairs. My interests include conflict management, development, civic engagement, International affairs, governance, politics, and human rights. My articles and views, on these issues, have appeared in The Africa Report, The BBC, Afrik News, African Positive Magazine, The African Voice, Pen Pusher, Dream Catcher, among other publications. My academic papers have appeared in the Augsburg Review, IUScholar, among other journals and conferences.
I believe learning has to be fun, exciting, and inherently valuable. Education must never be a pain, a struggle or an encumbrance to students. The moment a student feels unexcited about learning, a teacher has failed. A good teacher, therefore is one who makes the classroom a place where students look forward to being in. A good teacher is one who makes learning an activity from which student’s find pleasure, despite the rigor. Thus, my teaching philosophy is grounded in the creation of learning opportunities that satisfies the subjective and objective needs of students. Such learning opportunities would include the application of knowledge, and the continuous motivation of students to discover their inner voices, competences, and potentials. Educating students is the primary goal of teaching. Therefore, creating learning opportunities for students to learn and show learning is mandatory to the process of education. I believe that by creating the right environment, providing opportunities, understanding students, and recognizing each unique ability and passion will help students learn, develop, and discover themselves. I believe in the notion that everybody is a genius, and by nurture, care, passion, and interest a teacher can unleash that genius that lives in every student. Teachers should be cheerleaders and fans, if we must develop star students. There are no limits to what people can achieve when they are encouraged, believed in, trusted, and motivated.
I hope I can help you learn, grow,and expand your capacity to think, and apply yourself.
