I am interested in being a good teacher in addition to being a good researcher. I completed the Teaching Certificate training offered to Penn doctoral students by the Center for Teaching and Learning.
My goal as a teacher is to push my students to become good thinkers. My definition for “good thinking” derives directly from research in my field which shows that good thinkers are those who are able to actively seek out new information that might go against their prior beliefs, and consider all the evidence available. I would like my students not only to learn the concepts and theories I teach, but also to challenge me and themselves in how we think about the available knowledge. Therefore, just like my definition of “good thinking,” my teaching methods are highly influenced by my field of research.
