Teaching philosophy

Kevin Kao believes that creating a dynamic and relaxing learning environment is very important for learning computer animation technology and identifying students' interests and potential in varies computer graphic fields. Beyond striving to ensure that students learn the fundamental content of the courses Kao aims to aid student development through four key learning objectives: fostering project-based problem solving skills, facilitating the acquisition of lifelong learning and research skills, developing evidence-based clinical problem-solving strategies; and to preparing students to function as highly skilled and competent professionals across the fields of Computer Animation industry. Furthermore, my overall teaching philosophy is based on two principles: (a) active student learning strongly influences student-learning outcomes; and (b) assessment procedures strongly influence student acquisition of knowledge.

My favorite quote:

"Not every one can become a great computer graphic artist, but a great computer graphic artist can come from everywhere"
