Teaching Philosophy

My pedagogical approach is based on Lewin's maxim: “there is nothing as practical as a good theory”. I believe that students learn best when they are motivated by the relevance of the subject to everyday life. From the first days of my courses, I emphasize how the course materials can benefit employees of all levels. I also encourage them to think about the relevance of the course for their future career paths.

Instead of just telling or showing how the course materials help us better understand the world, I stimulate my students to get actively involved and take ownership of their individual learning processes. It is for this reason that industry engagement serves as a cornerstone of my teaching activities. Working in collaboration with companies—in the form of case assignments or primary research projects—uniquely allows students to apply the course materials in a practical setting and offers a superior learning experience.

My goal in teaching is to give students a cognitive and theoretical toolkit that enables them to improve their jobs, their teams, and the organizations they work for. Ultimately, I want to teach them to become proactive individuals, confident enough to initiate change and make a difference.
