Teaching Approach

I use learner-centered approach in teaching in which I focus heavily on the needs of the students. I also incorporate following key principles for this approach in my lesson plan (Chickering and Gamson, 1987).

  1. Encourages contacts between students and faculty.
  2. Develops reciprocity and cooperation among students.
  3. Uses active learning techniques.
  4. Gives prompt feedback.
  5. Emphasizes time on task.
  6. Communicates high expectations.
  7. Respects diverse talents and ways of learning.
