Teaching Methodologies

Most of my teaching methodology as described by a set of practices has been based on policies found in http://www.citytech.cuny.edu/aboutus/collegePolicies.shtml  and a general yet perhaps evolving set of principles in action such as : golden rule synonymous with “what goes around comes around” but better practiced as what you/others wish would come around should closely resemble what actually goes around”  Time and space constraints don’t currently allow my delving deeper into this but suffice it to say for now that I have a whole “boat-load” of documents I like to refer to for these kinds of things.. let’s just proceed to a bit of what I can share a strong affinity to….

Thanks to Dr. AE Dreyfuss, I have been very much endeared to some of the following learning strategies resources as taught in her Independent Course for Peer Leaders (Peer Led Team-based Learning a.k.a PLTL)

Richard M. Felder & Barbara A. Soloman (I like to recommend students to go to www.engr.ncsu.edu/learningstyles/ilsweb.htm online and try seeing one facet of their learning characterization) See also http://www4.ncsu.edu/unity/lockers/users/f/felder/public/ILSpage.html

Google or search out “David Kolb learning styles” to get more spectrum on the vast world of learning categorization..

These two examples coupled with any of several other interesting learning styles/learning theory contributors, concepts, and more, can go a long way in maximing our benefit when it comes to enhancing our mind in different aspects, levels, or times.

CUNY Skills Assessment Program from back in March 2006 or so http://portal.cuny.edu/cms/id/cuny/documents/informationpage/002147.htm (which was apparently accessed from a more private though not necessarily secure site)

Or may not be as expected (which you can figure out how with a bit of experimenting with the missing “www” from quickcert.com/coursedemos.cfm)

Even most searches made using “search engines” on the web can yield information that varies from day to day (or even hour to hour) depending on all the sum of media related to the search topic covered by that engine software… So understanding a bit more of this can help us each in making the most of our tech experiences together with learning.

Growing fond of living people more than to just inanimate things might be a simple way to put all in perspective for better living ways to emanate thereforth…
