Teaching

The core of my Teaching Philosophy is to facilitate the development of analytical, reasoning, and professional skills in Economics while taking into account three challenges: 1) heterogeneity of backgrounds and expectations; 2) linkages between course-content and real-world problems; and 3) engagement and interactions. These challenges may arise in both face-to-face and on-line courses, small and big size classes, and independent of the field of study or educational system. I am aware that the art of teaching is not static but dynamic and should be constantly adapting to new circumstances. Therefore, my teaching portfolio focuses on finding creative ways to address the above challenges and adapting to the dynamics of the classroom.
