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.
