Technology is growing at an exponential rate and it shapes the job market with many new complex fields. As technology continues to affect our lives, information technology (IT) students need to be prepared with critical problem solving skill sets to adapt and succeed in the workplace. My philosophy of teaching as a senior IT industry professional focuses on preparing students to truly add value to a potential employer in the business world. In my opinion, technology students must be educated to become critical problem solvers and my role as an instructor is to prepare them to be successful in solving real business world problems.
Every student is a unique individual with unique needs, capabilities, and desires. Each course that I have taught has been a learning experience for both the students and myself. Teaching is a very challenging endeavor, but it is also very rewarding. Seeing students truly grasp the meaning of the material, how it relates to other courses, and how it can be used in practical applications, is one of the most exciting parts of being an instructor.
ILT provides educational opportunities designed to prepare technical and management oriented professionals for careers in business, industry, government, and education. The programs are closely linked to workforce quality and productivity for the region, the state, and the nation. Graduates are workforce leaders who bring high levels of technology expertise to the workplace and are prepared to guide technological change.
