Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational and teaching philosophy is one of partnership with students to accomplish a mutually agreed goal of learning. To accomplish this goal, the instructor serves as an active "agent" to orchestrate ways to facilitate open and free communications; coordinate students' effort to meet course objectives; and to provide a healthy, learning environment to give each student the freedom to learn and grow. Prior to each class, the instructor will provide a detailed course outline of major area of interests for each chapter, followed with a copy of power point lecture slides. During class, students will be asked to summarize major concepts, ideas or issues brought out in the lecture as well as participating in small working groups to complete class exercises and assignments. In short, the instructor will integrate, power point slides, examinations and Core Assessment to meet course objectives.
