My teaching philosophy is centered on the essential role that an instructor plays to ensure active learning of students' critical thinking, creative learning and collaborative problem solving skills:

  • The process of learning itself is developmental where students progressively grow in competence for learning, specifically in critical and creative learning. 

  • Students learn the best and capture difficult concepts when they are engaged in experiential inquiry. Experiential inquiry in my teaching entails presenting students with empirical material that provides them with a real life context to understand theories and foundational concepts. Doing so also helps provide students with firsthand problem solving opportunities. 

  • There is added value of engaging students in collaborative inquiry, which fosters a symbiotic learning experience.
