Three principles guide my teaching: (1) make it structured (i.e., everyone involved knows what will happen for why), (2) make it interesting (i.e., present both intuitive & counter-intuitive findings together and explain the boundary conditions), and (3) make it reinforced (i.e., using multiple methods of teaching together).
I taught an Organization Behavior course (Managing People and Organizations) as the sole instructor for two semesters, earning high ratings and getting positive comments (Instructor ratings: Fall 2022: 3.92/4, Spring 2023: 3.72/4, 60 students each, fully in-person). I use various techniques, such as individual presentations, lectures with a Q&A style, in-class discussions, weekly reflection posts, quizzes, and group projects. Additionally, I try to make the class content as relevant as possible using different methods: personal stories, guest lecturers with interesting stories (e.g., for example, I had two active duty Air Force personnel as guest lecturers), movie clips, etc. Please take a look at some of the student comments I received below.
Additionally, I have served as a teaching assistant for several MBA classes, such as Teamwork, Leadership, and Ethics. Also, for a newly launched program, I designed an 100% online Ethical Leadership course, and I will serve as the instructor for its first offering.
I love teaching and see it as an integral part of my job as an academic. I am excited to teach any topics and more (e.g., decision-making, HRM, etc.) at all levels.
