instructor's educational philosophy is based on combining theory with learning, and where students demonstrate their knowledge in the subject matter in the following ways:
quizzes, dialogues, writings, examinations, lectures, role playing,
experiential exercises and readings both from textbook and from the literature. The students must understand the importance of research, focusing both on benchmarking and best practices. In all assignments, whether in the classroom or externally (such as written work), the students must incorporate research, notably peer-review material. Further, the instructor promotes a philosophy where students demonstrate their ability to apply the theoretical concepts. Finally, the instructor will engage each student to encourage the energetic
exploration of ideas, issues, and creative thinking.
