My teaching pedagogy includes teaching to a variety of modalities; which includes teaching to the visual, auditory and tactile learner. My lectures include the use of power points, videos, current industry news events, hands on displays and i-learn. In all classes the student is required not only to take exams but to follow the curriculum of the class with a semester long project. I find it is valuable to relate all topics to real life experiences.
