Teaching philosophy

Harika Rao firmly believes that a teacher can make positive changes in the lives of hundreds of people by helping them realize their potential to become productive members of the society. Her teaching philosophy has been that igniting ‘passionate curiosity’ in the minds of students is the key to sustained learning and putting learning on autopilot. She takes the students from spoon-feeding to a higher level of independent learning by making full use of ICT. As the adage goes: a good teacher explains the complexity and a great teacher reveals the simplicity.

Harika, with her diverse background, both culturally and academically, fine tunes her instructional methods to meet the diverse individual learning styles of students.

Regular one-on-one interaction with students as institutionalized by Lynn University as ‘dialogues of learning’, continually gauging the students’ progress, keeping them on track, taking co-ownership of, not just responsibility for, the students’ progress has been the hallmarks of her teaching philosophy.
