Education (PhD, MSc/MA, BSc/BA)
Teaching philosophy

I aim to provide a learning environment in biology classes in which students are encouraged to learn by doing. When their desire for learning is ignited, the students become better learners. While providing them with a good background in the fundamentals of biology, it is important to relate it to real-life situations. If the students realize that they need the information they have learnt they are stimulated to perform better. A learning setting in which the students learn through doing researches and analyzing their own data will help them develop their critical thinking skills and the ability to draw their own conclusions.
