Teaching Philosophy

"My philosophy of teaching is to instill curiosity and cultivate interest in students about the subject matter and the learning process. I achieve this by being a role model who is enthusiastic, positive and curious; by conveying the beauty of science and research and their historical development and practical relevance; and by showing that learning has an intrinsic value. I teach students how to understand and apply theories to a range of problems, and to think independently, critically, and creatively. I guide students towards acquiring a sound knowledge base, authentic understanding, and rigorous analytical skills" - Marten van Dijk
