Teaching Philosophy: 

I believe that there are two distinct but interdependent processes that should take place in the classroom: teaching and learning. I also believe that learning does not automatically follow from teaching, thus requiring a teacher to present material in a learner-centric fashion.

Dissertation: 

“Methods used to Assess Student Outcomes from Master's Degree Programs in Organizational Leadership”

This descriptive, non-experimental, cross-sectional study inquired into the methods used to assess the student outcomes of master’s degree programs in organizational leadership. A survey questionnaire was submitted to the directors of master’s degree programs in organizational leadership at 93 not-for-profit institutions of higher learning in 32 states. Twenty-five program directors responded. The data indicated that the institutions that participated in the survey have implemented processes for assessing student outcomes from their degree programs. Those assessment processes have produced actionable knowledge, which the institutions have been able to use in making program improvements. The data also indicated that the degree programs provided graduates with actionable knowledge, enabling them to improve their leadership performance in organizational settings.
