My teaching experience has shaped and strengthened my ideal for higher education: teach to inform and teach to inspire. A quote from Albert Einstein nicely subsumes my teaching philosophy– “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” In order to inform, teaching should be “simple” – knowledge needs to be conveyed in a smooth and efficient way. In order to inspire, teaching should never be “simpler.” An educator should foster critical thinking, encourage students to reach their full potential and enable them to appreciate the complexity of the world.
