Teaching Goals and Strategy



My goal is to provide a quality environment for students to learn, grow and become creative contributors to society. The teaching methods that I have outlined below will equip students with the skills, inquisitiveness, and creativity to solve many of the problems we face every day.

I have identified several different techniques that I use or plan to use in the future to increase student understanding, motivation, and participation. These three teaching goals are linked, so that many techniques apply to several goals.

Students are primarily motivated to learn the basic course material as part of their degree requirements. However, teachers have an opportunity to motivate a deeper understanding of the course material by presenting the information in an interesting manner that stimulates the students’ curiosity. When a student’s curiosity is peaked, the student pays greater attention to the information as it is presented, considers the materials from a personal perspective, and spends extra time researching and studying the finer details, which results in a better understanding of the course materials.

I have found teaching to be a rewarding experience. It is both encourages and helps me to deepen my understanding of the field. By reviewing and reevaluating materials in preparation for class, I continually improve my own grasp of the principles and techniques I am teaching. With insightful or surprising questions, students can challenge me to think in new directions. Like material in any course, teaching is also a skill to be mastered. I strive to improve my abilities as an instructor. I look for feedback from students and advice from fellow teachers. I have and will continue to seek out professional resources for developing my teaching abilities.

I am interested to teach a wide variety of courses on the field of Informatics. I look forward to developing new classes and revising existing courses to keep them current with the evolving standards of the field. In particular, I am interested in developing modern courses that cross the lines between disciplines, such as Health Informatics, which includes study of computer applications that manage information in all fields of healthcare, health sciences, and health research.
