My teaching philosophy concurs with my belief that cultivation of competence, instead of the practice of knowledge transfer, is the consummate goal of higher education. I stress the development of mindsets keen in search for problem-solving methods, rather than the mentality of knowing all the answers to each question. I strive to culture the spirit of active learning in my daily teaching that covers several courses cross-linked between geology program and chemistry department.
Impact of geology on environment, with emphasis on natural resources, natural hazards, the dependence of people and society on natural environments.
An introduction to earth system science, large-scale processes operating within the atmosphere, oceans, and solid Earth, and global environmental issues facing today¡¯s society.
