Teaching Philosophy

As an online instructor, I focus on creating a dynamic environment conducive to learning. I provide students with resources and practical information to support learning. I believe that learning never ends and in order to be successful in both the academic and business environments, we must be prepared to continue learning, changing and adapting. I believe that learning is not memorizing facts, but understanding concepts and applying them to real world situations. I strive to create a supportive learning environment where students can ask questions and together we can discover the answers. The online learning environment is a dynamic one. It requires people who will motivate thinking and change.
