My teaching philosophy is based on the view of applying practical examples and problem solving tasks to make the learning process easy and interesting for students. Connection of the topic with real life situations increases the potential of applying the acquired knowledge and skills in future. I value critical thinking over mere memorisation. There is considerable evidence to suggest that engaging students in active learning rather than passive listening improves both the speed and quality of their learning. Consequently, I try to make my classes as active and participative as possible and, as a teacher, seek to create a classroom milieu that encourages active participation by way of discussion, team projects and student presentations.
