Educational Philosophy: I believe the process of learning continues throughout life. I believe the student, if motivated with interesting information, will excel in their field of indever. I expect the student to take the initiative to read the information and text provided and be prepared to interact with the instructor and class. The instructor will engage each student in what is referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions.
