My Philosophy of Teaching

As I begin these reflections about teaching, I'm reminded of one of Mark Twain's dictum, "Don't let schooling get in the way of education." I believe that the purpose of educating college-level students can only be achieved by presenting them with more than lectures, rote memorization tasks, and basic projects (e.g., traditional schooling). A professor must move beyond the traditional model of schooling to a point at which students can learn effectively.


When students come into my college courses, they are a few steps away from their professional careers. What is true for a business is also true for its employees, to succeed an individual must learn to be faster, smarter, more creative, and be able to learn from mistakes. To move students out of their comfort zone by presenting them with real-world problems that have undefined boundaries, solutions, and that require collaboration as well as competition. The goal of this is to help students to learn to be critical thinkers and effective problem solvers so that they can be effective competitors in their careers.
