Teaching Philosophy

As a college professor for more than 20 years, I understand the tremendous knowledge and skills of our adult learners. I am committed to integrating that vast talent into our classroom. I do this by asking students to share experiences in the discussion questions, assignments, and course projects. The goal here is to help the student bridge the gap between theory and application. I ask students to think about the big picture. I want them to consider how a change in one component affects other parts of the organization. The students must have a macro perspective when making decisions. When teaching my classes, I reinforce the importance of conducting business in an ethical manner. Finally, when teaching online classes, I am professional, proactive, and a problem-solver.
