My philosophy of teaching evolved from many years of teaching experience. As I reflect on my beliefs regarding teaching and learning. Now a days, educational means and ways are changing and challenging. Educators, have to cope with these changes in order to be an effective in their teaching approaches. My teaching philosophy is driven by the university and college’s mission statement, teaching, and learning strategies informed by institutional indirect assessment, target market and needs of stakeholders.
