Teaching Philosophy:

Two ideas that are central to Melissa Lehman's teaching philosophy are that the best way to engage students is to use a variety of teaching techniques that involve different learning strategies, and that teaching should emphasize helping students become good learners. Lehman tries to incorporate these ideas into the main goals of her teaching, which include engaging a diverse body of students, making learning relevant for students, and incorporating research applications into her teaching.  Lehman's goal is to create an environment where students are enthusiastic about course material, enjoy participating in the course, and feel satisfaction after completing course activities, encouraging them to want to learn.  In line with this goal, she strives to make the learning process both effective and enjoyable for students.
