Educational Philosophy: My philosophy of teaching emphasizes student learning whether that learning occurs in a face to face format or in the online environment. One of my areas of expertise is psychology, and one of the main things that I learned from the study of psychology is that people have different learning styles. I have also learned as a result of study and experience, that students learn best when the material presented is timely and relevant and applicable. Adult students like to see the relevance of what they are studying. One way that I like to do this is by including current events and cases for discussions. Discussions are the heart and soul of effective learning. This is the one way that students get to know one another and it gives them an opportunity to learn from one another. In addition, there is a great deal of information on the web that students can use to enhance their learning. Thus, they are encouraged to use web resources for this purpose.
