Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy is based on the concept of structured learning. To benefit fully from an education, students must aggressively read and study course material on a daily basis, continually applying and building upon their knowledge base. Students are expected to be well prepared to discuss the text examples and assignments provided in each chapter. Discussion and application of these examples and assignments will guide the student’s path toward mastery of the subject material.
