My Teaching Philosophy

In this outline of my teaching philosophy, I answer three questions: How do I perceive the role of teaching? What are the goals of my teaching? How do I aim to achieve these goals? The Why: Teaching to make a difference I believe that most academics make the greatest impact via their teaching. Not research (or academic service).

Section 2 is useful, but it is more about prompts for your writing and that does not warrant any summary or…

These are my notes for the book “Beyond Satisfaction: The Secret to Crafting a Profitable Online Course That Will Change Lives” by Breanne Dyck. Section 1: Overview The book “Beyond Satisfaction: The Secret to Crafting a Profitable Online Course That Will Change Lives” by Breanne Dyck is about user experience as a key factor for online courses.

The basis for everything: Track your time!

The importance of being accountable for your research time Many people live their lives without ever realizing the importance of being accountable for their time. There are those who believe that life goes on as it always does, but those who know better understand that this is not the case. We all have the same 24 hours in a day and we need to make sure we make them count. This is also true for academics—actually, it is even truer for them. How so? The problem with academic work is that it is highly non-linear. Your input does not translate…
