Teaching philosophy

As a University Lecturer/Teacher, I adopt the interactive and participatory style of teaching. This style allows the students to digest the ideas, values and skills that are imparted to them and as well contribute to the discussion, hence enriching the stock of knowledge, particularly in the field of International Relations. In order to ensure retention of the ideas by the students, strengthen their self-confidence and inculcate in them, the spirit of teamwork, given the fact they are future diplomats, ambassadors, scholars and researchers, I usually divide my classes into groups for the purpose of giving assignments on the reigning thematic areas in global studies or International Relations so that they present in the presence of their colleagues and relevant questions asked and answers advanced or given to the questions. The above approach helps me a lot in controlling my classes, thus achieving my teaching/learning objectives, as demonstrated in the learning outcomes and overall performance of the students. I equally utilise technology, especially when there is access to the Internet to further demonstrate certain points on the interactive board in the class, which are in line with the curriculum/syllabus. This facilitates teaching and as well, enhances learning.
