Teaching Philosophy


           Teaching at university is both challenging and rewarding. I enjoy the challenge of exploring the most effective ways to convey knowledge to students and encouraging them to acquire the knowledge. Nothing is more rewarding than having a student saying to his/her professor 'Hi. What I learned in your class helped me do ... or helped me get a job, etc. Such words give me a feeling of accomplishment. I am very happy when my students participate in regional or national competitions and earn awards. As a student, I have noticed the patience and devotion of my professors in teaching and educating me as well as the time they spend explaining the materials in class and after class in different ways. I think it is my duty to do the same for my students.

 

            I built my teaching philosophy on my belief that a teacher should encourage the inquiring nature of their students. It is important to help students build a solid base of knowledge on which they can draw to solve problems through critical thinking. I use a variety of ways to teach my students including quizzes, audio and video demonstrations. It is important for students to understand the phenomenon surrounding information systems (IS) and the principles used in solving our daily problems using technology. I encourage my students to pursue a career in IS and learn how to use IS if they pursue other careers. This goal is accomplished via emphasizing that IS represents a bridge between computer science and business. It is therefore our duty, as IS specialists, to facilitate the communication between computer science and business. Students in my class are stimulated to apply theoretical concepts using a learn-by-doing methodology. I demonstrate how my students can benefit from using IS knowledge by personal example using several tools implemented on my personal website (http://www.datastore.ro/lucianvisinescu). My classes provide learning opportunities for a variety of student backgrounds and learning styles. I see necessary to evaluate the students at the beginning of the semester to better understand their level of preparation for the course and subsequently tailor the course content to fit the students need.

 

            In the classroom, I create an environment of mutual respect where no question is 'irrelevant' or 'simple'. Students are encouraged to ask as many questions as they can and not to be ashamed of asking questions. I believe that people ask questions because they want to find answers to their problems, and we all ask different questions at different moments in our life. Class discussions represent an important manner in which students are acquainted with each other and I encourage this type of interaction, especially for the team assessment projects. One of the studies that I pursued in understanding the sources of IT literacy at university level shows that students outside of the university acquire an important amount of IT literacy. Therefore, it is important to engage students in acquiring IT knowledge through assignment of projects that students can conduct via working with their peers. I stimulate my students to find and present IT topics of their choice to their classmates. This activity arouses their creativity and makes them see the value of IT in their own projects. As IT is a dynamic environment, I continuously adapt my teaching by using new tools that helps me manage grades, assignments and keep students engaged in classroom.
