Teaching philosophy

Education should prepare students for real life situations. Therefore, Students must be provided opportunities to do discovery learning and problem solving. In other words, they need to practice their real life including their professional ones while they are receiving education at an educational institution. Theory is necessary. However, Students needs to put this theory into practice. This is what we do in real life.
