There is a lot of talk about creating an environment of success in the education sector.
Upon reading and learning in this course I’ve developed a deeper appreciation for the instructors I work with and the institution we teach at. Although our program was developed decades ago we continually try to improve upon it.
This goes beyond just updating course material and keeping current with trends, my department as a whole tries to create a targeted approach where the students come first by supporting them in as many aspects as we can. I think this is really evident when we take a look at our student engagement and see how excited and apt students are to learn new topics and apply them.
I think the real secret though to our success is that we are more than a collection of people teaching we are a community that works together and tries synergistically approach problems as a community rather than as individuals.
