My general philosophy on teaching and learning Learning is an active (as opposed to passive) endeavor This means you can’t just sit back and wait for me to “pour” information into your head Learning depends on the student, not the instructor My job as an instructor is to put you in the best possible position to learn; the learning is up to you

Laptops Many students choose to take notes on a laptop, which I encourage Please do not bring a laptop if you are going to use it for Facebook, Twitter, etc. Or alternatively, if you absolutely have to check your Facebook page between 8:30 and 11:20 on Thursdays, please don’t come to class. In other words, if you’re not going to be mentally present there is no reason to be physically present Also please do not use cell phones, BlackBerries, etc., during class
