Teaching Philosophy
Learning is a two-way street. It is my job to ensure that the material is not only covered, but also activities are engaging and are used to enhance student understanding. However, it is also the student's responsibility to own the material, make valid attempts at fully understanding the material, and make sure that he/she seeks additional help when needed. I believe peer (content related) conversations strengthen this learning and strongly encourage it. It is also my duty to insist on conceptual understanding. To this regard, I generally will respond to a student's question with a question of my own, which causes the student to think more in-depth about the topic. This usually results in the student coming up with the answer to his/her own question.
