q & a
What technology do you use in the classroom?
"I use eCampus as our primary platform for content delivery and as a communication hub with students. Given the unique blend of professional and academic students in our Safety Management Program, I also place significant emphasis on the Discussion Board. This allows everyone to share their individual opinions and insights, fostering a harmonious environment that cultivates synergy among diverse perspectives."
How do you mentor students?
"Throughout my career, mentoring has played a pivotal role in shaping my professional journey. From my experiences teaching high school students during a student teaching practicum to leading troops as a platoon leader in the Republic of Korea Army Engineering, I have had the privilege of mentoring and being influenced by individuals with diverse backgrounds."
"These collective experiences have not only shaped my teaching approach but have also equipped me to guide safety management students with a blend of academic and practical perspectives."
What is the difference between online teaching vs on-campus?
"Since the rapid shift to online classes driven by the COVID-19 pandemic, the role of instructors has transformed from knowledge delivery to knowledge sharing and collaborative learning facilitation."
"Coaching and mentorship have gained prominence over traditional teaching methods. Similarly, students have transitioned from passive recipients to active participants in their own education."
What is the key to student success in your classes?
"The key to student success in my classes lies in fostering an environment where active learning, critical thinking, and collaboration are encouraged."
"I believe in providing clear guidance and support, while also challenging students to think independently and apply their knowledge to real-world scenarios."
