Statement on Teaching
I don’t teach subjects; I teach people.
Inspiring students to think in new ways and to set high standards for creativity and excellence drives my teaching philosophy. As a teacher, I foster a learning environment in which student participation and peer teaching become an active part of the classroom learning experience. In this context Research, teamwork, and multi-disciplinary thinking are emphasized through problems that are broad-based conceptually, thus forcing students to find individual solutions. Synectics problem-solving strategies as used to make connections that resolve existing creative issues while revealing new questions. Individual and group critiques are used to provide students with an opportunity to present and defend their ideas and solutions.
