My teaching philosophy focuses on thorough knowledge and preparation, as well as a strong commitment to connecting with the students to expand their boundaries in the area of electrical engineering. Beyond the classroom, it is important to engage students in undergraduate research programs and relevant real-world assignments. I believe that students can accomplish more than they believe is possible. My task is to encourage and nudge them to take the intellectual risks that are fundamental to their success. In order to accomplish this, I try to empower students as much as possible by making them active participants in their own education. I often employ interactive lectures and large group discussions. Also, I make use of small group work in which students take on more responsibility for their own education. Carefully structured research projects, often a combination of individual and group efforts, provide a meaningful way for students to undergo their own intellectual explorations in a supportive and cooperative environment. These projects usually have a presentation component to them so that students can share their conclusions, while gaining competency in delivering oral and/or visual presentations. I imagine teaching undergraduate and graduate courses as having three overlapping parts: curricula, methods, and assessments. Curricula may be understood as what instructors are teaching. It also can be viewed, however, as what students are learning, what they end up learning and what they are able (and/or are willing) to actually do with what they learn. Embracing the understanding of curricula in the latter way transfers the focus of teaching away from me as a teacher to the students who should be actively engaged. I adopt methods as a mélange of possibilities for assisting students who wish to learn something new along a range of eventualities that extends from what I want for them to what they veritably will invest time doing. Assessment, the third element, I visualize as points of convergence where all of us, teacher and students, stop to discover the gaps between what we are learning, what we ought to be learning, and what we actually are learning. Assessments, in my understanding, are the scholarship of learning. Likely, they ought to be evidence-based and flow over the duration of the course with specific course objectives. Assessments, seen this way, may take many forms, ranging from exams to one-on-one conversations.
