's preferred teaching style:
I love to teach with experiential learning. I currently teach online and I know how important the teacher presence is. I like to ensure that the students are being led to think critically and that they always feel that they can ask me any questions. I do not currently have the capability in my classroom environment but I would also incorporate the usage of web cameras and microphones to simulate the face-to-face classroom environment.
