In order to develop a core foundation of faith as well as educational and practical teaching skills necessary to prepare Regent University students for success in today's classrooms, two central teaching-learning themes have prevailed my own teaching: an engaging Christian environment and real-life applications of acquired knowledge. All too often, in order to fulfill diploma requirements, students enroll in classes where they are unable to see how faith and course information are applicable in their chosen career. I feel it is most important for Regent students to understand how their faith and acquired knowledge are applied to real-world situations.
I believe there are explicit and implicit ways to integrate faith in teaching. Thoughtful classroom exercises and discussions challenge students to discern relationships among faith, practice, application, and knowledge. I model my faith in my interpersonal relationship with students, serving as both mentor and teacher. I integrate faith and learning in my teaching by discussing how faith guides our daily actions, our human understanding of teaching practices, and our effect on others. My students not only learn theoretical aspects of teaching practices, but how to model Christian leadership.
