My philosophy and practice in teaching is that of creating an open, psychologically safe learning environment for my students – one that aligns with Experiential Learning and my research work on team interaction. I always aim to create a space that allows for rich and dynamic interaction between the instructor and students/participants in the room to integrate experience, reflection, theory and practice in a way that promotes the generative capacity to see and develop new ideas that can be applicable to knowledge and practice. I believe that global leaders have to develop the rigor of a scientist and the sensitivity of an artist in their interactions with others. At the doctoral level, I focus not only on developing an inquisitive mind but also to coach students to develop learning flexibility to align with the learning foci within the different phases of their doctoral journey.
This philosophy that focuses on creating such an inclusive environment that is committed to lifelong learning with attention to the uniqueness of individuals aligns with our school’s mission to develop intellectual and practical relevance. I believe that by being current, relevant, creative, and innovative in working with students and the business community while also valuing honesty, integrity, and openness to new ideas in classroom interactions, faculty members can see themselves as members of a team engaging in collaborative teaching and learning while also striving for continuous improvement of course content, delivery, and integration.
