THE SEARCHLIGHT MESSENGER

The Teaching Philosophy of Dr. Counce, Professor of Medicine

The philosophy of teaching I have embraced is based on the belief that learning is student centered and that students need to be equal partners in the learning process. There must be present, a student mentor relationship of trust. There should, however, always be an authoritative presence in the mentor. This leadership should be omnipresent, whether in the classroom or online. The mentoring teacher’s role involves using his expertise to place necessary resources in the hands of the student and to train him to be not just knowledgeable in his chosen fields of study, but to become an expert at resourcefulness and seek the role of “teacher’ himself. It is here where leadership is taught through example.

Now that the majority of teaching is performed on an online forum, students now know that the teacher’s role in the online classroom is to be a facilitator, in addition to being a provider of information. As with my on campus students and students whom I tutor, I create multiple discussion questions to keep the online discussion exciting and stimulating, and to address the multiple backgrounds and interests of my learners. With all pupils, I provide ongoing rhetorical, written, auditory and visual illustration in my classroom environment, particularly in Anatomy and Physiology as well as Microbiology, Hematology, and Clinical Chemistry, in addition to General Biology. I am always there to support them as they seek their answers, and encourage them to work together to get the most out of their learning. Detailed descriptions of writing assignments should always be provided so that students are able to see how a good finished product shines.

To me, the most important skills that I can help a student develop are the skills of observational resourcefulness and abstraction. This incorporates their ability to critically think about the information sought, and writing cohesively as to reveal their own expertise when studying the medical sciences and biology. This didactic experience moves the student easily into the domain of the practicing clinician or professional biologist. Every course I teach is seen through the lens of objective information processing and critical thinking skills needed to be effective in the practice of science. 

I am passionate about the use of writing skills as a technique in teaching students to be more aware of their thinking and to be careful and reasoned in their acceptance of new scientific information. If they leave me with a healthy skepticism of information and the skill to use technology to access better evidence, I will have accomplished my goal, and know that I have helped produce another professional.

No, not really. Most webpage or site hosting platforms have templates which allow for you to just find your link or html code from an advertiser or any other source and just copy it then paste it to the template and it will place the link or banner on your page with click-throughs credited to you. Let us know if you need more help

You can also use message boards to advertise for the Medicare supplement plans you sell an as agent. This can be done both online and offline. You can visit community centers and old age home where you can find several people who require supplement plans to cut down on their medical costs.

I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
