's preferred teaching style:
I have a more relaxed approach to teaching. Rather than being an "in your face" kind of instructor, I tend to give the students a certain amount of freedom to express themselves. I feel that this allows them to open up more and participate more than they would if they felt oppressed my my teaching style. I like to provide lots of practical applications for my students to work with as I feel this helps them retain the knowledge better than a straight-forward lecture would. I'm fair with my students; if they show an honest effort, I take that into account. However, if they slack off, and make no real effort, their grade will reflect that.
