An ancient African adage defined a teacher’s roles as spreading wisdom, imparting professional knowledge, and resolving doubts (mentoring).
I could not agree more, I believe that a teacher’s primary goal is to help students become wise individuals who think independently and critically. This is particularly important for students in the field of information technology, who will work in a fast-paced field where the flux of changes is the norm rather than the exception.
My teaching philosophy dictates that I teach to the individual student, not to the group. This means that whether I have nine students in a class or ninety, each student will feel as though I care about their progress and development. As such, the activities I choose for my students all have a specific purpose related to the goals of the course, and are often individually tailored to the needs of the individual.
In addition to thinking skills, I want to train students to be adept IT professionals in today’s information society and be effective and productive in the posts of their choice.
