My philosophy of teaching is based on a belief that learning needs to be student centered and that students need to be equal partners in the learning process. In addition, teaching methodology and innovative methods of evaluation are also important. My teaching philosophy reflects my pragmatist nature. In order to serve my students in achieving their learning objectives I feel that motivating them to exert effort is vital. Evaluation and self reflection is important and I try and engage in this often and make suitable revisions to ensure that the needs of the course and program are constantly met.
