           BELIEF STATEMENTS, TEACHING PHILOSOPHY, AND

                    PROFESSIONAL APPLICATION

 

Seeking knowledge through research and communicating knowledge

through effective teaching are complementary academic activities,

which stimulate one another.  Teaching depends on the infusion of

new information to motivate both teacher and student in a

collaborative effort to assimilate learning.  In a university

setting, a teacher possesses certain responsibilities toward the

student in the search for knowledge.

 

     PARTNERSHIP:  Teacher and student are partners in the learning

process.  Each depends upon the other.  Learning cannot exist in a

solitary vacuum.  Teachers, who are professional students, serve as

guides to those desiring knowledge.  Without students, there would

be no need for teachers.  Students and teachers have a symbiotic

relationship in which the success of each furthers the interest of

the other.  Student achievements can inspire teachers to become

even better educators.

 

     RESPECT:  Students, as the vessels for learning, deserve to be

treated with dignity and kindness.  They are not inferiors to whom

learning is merely passed.  In the search for knowledge, questions

by students should be answered without personal antagonism.

Student and teacher stand on equal ground because, in the quest for

learning, each can say as Socrates "I know nothing except the fact

of my ignorance."     

 

     ENCOURAGEMENT:  Effective teaching recognizes that students,

as individuals, have specific needs which ought to be met.  No

magic formula exists for educating successfully all students.  Each

individual is different.  Students should be encouraged but not

coerced, because learning cannot thrive in a forced environment.

Students must be allowed to first determine the extent of their own

participation in learning and then be prepared to accept the

consequences for that decision.  The ultimate responsibility for

learning rests with the student.   

 

     COUNSELING:  The receipt of adequate guidance is also part of

the learning process.  A teacher's experience should be shared with

assigned advisees and students in general.  Good advice for a

student may eliminate the consequences of poor choice or

indecision. 

 

     FACTS:  Knowledge of subject matter is essential, but it can

only be applied in the context of facts.  Effective teaching

develops the student's fact finding skills.  Exercises should

emphasize the important difference between perceived and material

facts.  The rigorous process of objective fact finding results in

material facts which is often beyond the cloudy grasp of immediate

human perception.

 

     PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE:  Academic instruction becomes more

meaningful in the context of practical application.  Knowledge, for

it to be truly useful, should be applied to every day life.

 

     BASIC SKILLS:  Teaching must emphasize always the development

of basic skills.  The tools of reading, writing, and oral

communication advance knowledge.  The classroom environment should

exercise all these skills.

 

     CRITICAL THINKING:  Knowledge, for its expansion, depends upon

critical thinking, a skill, required by successful students, that

needs to be nurtured constantly by the effective teacher through

problem solving exercises that stimulate curiosity.

 

     VALUES:  Teaching should not be a barren experience unrelated

to societal values.  Effective teaching encourages students to make

their own reasoned choices regarding issues effecting their lives

and society in general.

 

     COMMITMENT:  The implementation of knowledge is useless

without disciplined commitment.  The academic experience should

emphasize personal responsibility.

 

     SERVICE:  Knowledge should not be gained for purely selfish

motives.  Knowledge carries with it a responsibility that the

bearer offer service for the good of the community.

 

     GOALS:  Life's duration is uncertain.  The challenge is to

maximize one's abilities and always seek self-improvement.

 

     LAW AND ETHICS:  Right conduct consists of those principles

established by society in its laws.  Yet, not everything legal is

necessarily good.  Beyond the law exist certain ethical values

which are unenforceable and yet no less defensible.  Students

should be able to recognize this distinction.

 

To implement the above belief statements, I stay current in my

academic disciplines of law and business ethics through profession-

al reading, research, writing, and informally reviewing new

textbooks.

 

My teaching methodology is lively and fast-paced because I assume

the assigned reading already has been done.  I supplement classroom

discussion with events from the daily paper and other outside

sources.  I employ the socratic method of teaching, informal

lecture, and group student oral presentations to diversify my

teaching style.  I attempt to build a relationship, based on

respect and good humor, with each of my students and have used

picture taking as a means to solidify that bond.    

 

To instill self-confidence and generate creativity in my students,

I offer alternative testing methods, such as classroom

presentations and written projects, which permit greater academic

analysis and self-expression.  A number of my students have written

letters to the editor published in the Valdosta Daily Times and

other regional papers (tab H) on the legal and ethical implications

of important social issues. 

 

In addition to my own assigned advisees, I am available for

counselling to all my students, past or present, during regular

scheduled office hours or by appointment at their convenience. 

Upon request, I review resumes and offer suggestions for

improvement.  I prepare letters of recommendation for employment,

scholarship, academic awards, and other noteworthy purposes.  When

appropriate, I also offer contacts for prospects of possible

employment.

 

Since arriving in 1993 at VSU's College of Business, I have

initiated, administered, and personally funded each semester the

Business Ethics Book Award program (tab F), which recognizes

superior student academic performance and ethical awareness in BUSA

2106, The Environment of Business.

 

Teaching is a higher calling, a true profession, which demands more

than ordinary effort.  Great responsibilities are placed upon the

educator.  In this field, success transcends simple monetary gain

because it is ultimately measured by the amount of personal

satisfaction derived through selfless service for the good of

students and the greater community.
