I believe that in order to develop my teaching skills, it is critical to reflect on my teaching goals, the methods I use to achieve them, and the efficacy of those methods. Below I have developed four major sections addressing my teaching experience:
The core of my teaching practice is based on two interwoven themes: scientific literacy and effective communication. My teaching approach focuses on helping students to develop critical thinking skills, such as formulating questions, generating ideas, integrating new knowledge into a conceptual framework, and then demonstrating their mastery of the concept through oral and written communication. I aim to model these skills for students through my teaching in order to facilitate their development from student to teacher.
