Educational Philosophy: I believe in student-centered teaching, in which students are empowered to question, explore, and integrate learning into their own lives on their own terms through interaction, reading, and applicable writing assignments as well as discussion board conversation. As a facilitator, I am here to help bring knowledge, present alternative viewpoints, and guide student learning, but ultimately, learning is the job of the student: I am here to help students to facilitate their own learning.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses will include a Core Assessment with rubric. This will include ¾ of the Core LearningOutcomes listed above. The Core Assessment in this course will be a major critical paper of no fewer than 5 pages, which will include research and MLA documentation.
