Dr. Gene’s PHILOSOPHY OF LEARNING : The graduate courses at HU fit the experiential teaching style of Dr. Landrum who prefers to use a philosophical approach to life and education where the theories are applied to real-life situations. For Landrum, quality is far more important than quantity, one of the tragedies of many large organizations in America. It is far more important to do things right than to kill it with voluminous numbers or data. In other words, the ability to tie a research project together and make it work in the real world or on the street than doing it by the numbers or as demanded by the textbook.
