- Stimulating and inspiring students to do active learning is the most important aspect of my teaching philosophy. Collaborative learning is equally important, as team work is now emphasized in most organizations/corporations. When writing a course syllabus, I try to include topics or projects that are suited for formal group work, and organize the students into complimentary dynamic groups that will help them learn the project objectives. - Another important aspect of teaching lies in the quality of the instructor, that is good teaching needs a lot of time and effort. To this end, I am always refining my methods and improving my techniques to take advantage of what I am constantly learning about teaching - Another principle for good teaching practice is to maximize student engagement in the material, for example, by asking the class questions the resulting interaction allows for increased student involvement. - I consider regular feedback and evaluations as a very critical and important learning tool and I tend towards short and more frequent assignments rather than lengthy and infrequent ones. My goal in grading is to maximize the accuracy of evaluations.
