Educational Philosophy: Good reference materials, an active exchange of ideas and a willingness to participate fully are essential in education. Everyone must dive in with their questions, opinions and personal experiences. While it’s important to have a clear definition of the objectives of a course, it’s equally important to maintain flexibility and creativity.
