Philosophy of Teaching Dr. Sharon Chanley I am committed to democratic pedagogy. My commitment comes from three major sources: my experiences as a student, from students’ feedback, and from reading and studying about educational theory and practice. Throughout my years as a student, I regularly tried to have a voice in course decisions. So, I know firsthand how frustrating it can be to have instructors and educational institutions not interested in student input. Therefore, I try to ground my teaching in my students’ voices, whether through their direct input or through their course evaluations. I take their criticisms, and praise, seriously. Finally, the work of bell hooks, Paulo Friere, and Ira Shor has strongly influenced my educational philosophy. I try to help students develop, through in-course use, the tools they need for critical thinking about problem-solving, whether it is about problems in the workplace, or about social problems they care about.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
