Working Together to Achieve a Goal
My Teaching
As a teacher, I design and organize my courses by taking into consideration three main aspects: content, interaction, and assessment. Content is selected and combined according to institutional goals, my own purposes, and my students’ interests and knowledge. Interaction plays an important role in my classes and I encourage students to co-operate with each other and me. I believe that teaching involves a communicative practice that pursues the cooperative construction of knowledge as a main goal. I use technology to make learning easier, more pleasurable, and inspiring. Assessment is also a core aspect of my teaching practice because it allows me to establish whether or not the course goals have been achieved, and, therefore, the effectiveness of my teaching approach.
