Teaching Philosophy
My teaching philosophy is to guide by providing access to information. The student/resident will search for knowledge as they learn. Students need the opportunity to discover for themselves and practice skills in authentic situations. Additionally, I believe in integrative learning to solidify the knowledge obtained. Problem Based Learning Discussions is active learning led by the students. This method challenges the student to incorporate knowledge gained with integrative subjects as well as encourages discussion and interactive teaching to their peers.
