The question, “how does this translate to life?” drives my teaching philosophy. I believe that students benefit from the learning process better when they relate what they learn in class to real life situations. Hence, I use plenty of real life examples in my classes to reify the abstract and bring theory to life.
I also believe in maximum student-teacher interaction. It is my opinion that pedagogy improves when both the instructor and the student are in a common realm of interaction and comprehension. The maxim “no student left behind” plays a big role in my teaching.
Needless to say, technology is core to the learning process in the field of communication. I make extensive use of various technologies in my teaching, including, but not limited to electronic learning materials.
