My teaching philosophy compares instructors to tour guides and their students to world travelers. Within this metaphor, instructors themselves have often traveled new worlds and engaged many unknowns. As such, they are able to model some future journey for their students. Instructors are further described as culturally sensitive, inquisitive and pedagogically savvy. The philosophy ends with a student's ability to learn more than just course content. The desired outcome is for students to nurture lifelong learning.
