Robinson believes that students learn when they are exposed to different ways
of understanding the material. Reading, elaboration through lectures and the
presentation of diverse visual media, and discussions of the material, in
addition to projects that require putting it all together, give every type of
learner several ways to synthesize the subject matter. He also understands that
it is crucial to promote other kinds of learning than that related to the
course material. Students should learn critical thinking through questions
posed and class discussions. The structure of projects should lead to
improvement of social skills. Projects that require classroom presentations can
improve speaking skills and professionalism. As both a teacher and a Ph.D. Candidate,
his most satisfying experiences in the classroom have revolved around the
powerful impression that, in the strange spell of a discussion or lecture, it
is possible to see the world differently. However brief, he continues to
believe that it is possible to evoke such uncanny episodes—moments when we
think outside our sphere of habits and rituals. In this sense, his
teaching philosophy can perhaps best be described as the teaching of
philosophy, by which the evocation of different styles of thinking, that allow
us to re-consider our own largely unconscious relationship to understanding
healthcare management and, perhaps, the world at large. It is with this last
point that encapsulates his real philosophy of teaching. In essence, he
wants to provoke students to think differently, to see that the subjects that
concern us in healthcare management theory and concepts are not hermetically
insulated but engage manifold questions in the world to allow us to see with a
different theoretical lens. The willingness to make those conceptual leaps,
though by no means always successful, ultimately nourishes a form of critical
thinking that he believes to be valuable in any capacity or field.
