Teaching philosophy

Gary Carlin strongly believes in experiential learning. Examples of this include having students work for "real clients".  Also, Carlin uses a combination of lectures and in class activities to break up the class time and keep the students engaged. He is constantly trying to "flip the classroom" and get students to discuss and debate topics covered throughout the semesters.

Carlin also believes in a balanced approach to assessments. He uses a combination of homework assignments, individual and group presentations, exams and participation to assess student's overall performance. These assessments are tied to the learning outcomes developed for each of his courses.
