I have been an instructor for UAC School of Global Management since September 2014 and I am passionate about, and committed to, providing the most rewarding educational experience for our students. I believe that when students feel valued, are encouraged and motivated to learn and they truly believe that teachers are willing to extend themselves, students will respond to the efforts that are being made, and success is the end result. I am committed to an interdisciplinary approach to teaching, and all of my courses are structured with this in mind. Rather than simply lecturing to a class. I strive to cultivate an interactive environment in which students can express themselves freely while learning to engage with the past in meaningful ways. I emphasize critical thinking and the need to consider business within its larger social, historical, and intellectual contexts.
Having been an adult learner, I have a deep understanding and appreciation of the issues that adult learners face. I am very sensitive to the challenges faced by the adult learner. I am committed to opportunities that promote the diverse learning styles of adult learners while promoting and encouraging curiosity, self-confidence, and self-expression in the students. Kouzes and Posner (2003) aptly state that "...more than anything, people want to follow leaders who are credible...that their word can be trusted, that they're personally passionate and enthusiastic about the work that they're doing, and that they have the knowledge and skill to lead." I could not agree more and I consider it an extraordinary privilege to contribute to the development of UAC's future powerful global leaders!
