The instructor is the ‘facilitator of a learning experience’. The knowledge, desire, perseverance, goals and objectives are those of each student.
His ‘job’ is to expose students to a body of knowledge, some of which may be familiar and some may be new. he assists them in applying the theory and principles and body of factual knowledge into valid and realistic applications for the business world.
Whenever the course material allows (which is most of the time) he avoids lectures, memorization, regurgitation. He believes in the vitality and power of the Socratic method of learning. His teaching style is more of an ‘open forum’ of debate and discussion – tapping into the knowledge the students already possess and adding in his own contribution to the learning. It is his belief that the more ‘they talk – the more they learn’.
