Teaching at Arizona State University
Teaching
philosophy
and goals
I am not only a scholar of technology adoption. I am also a proponent of the adoption
of technology in the classroom and the adoption of alternative education technologies
beyond the classroom. In light of that, I teach an online course that is offered as
part of ASU’s Earned Admission program. Moreover, I teach a hybrid undergraduate
class on economic datareleases. Hybrid classes have the lecture materials online.
Classroom time is used for assignments, discussions, and applications. I use this
format to teach students practical current analysis of economic data. The emphasis
on the practical side in this course material reflects my goal to get students in their
junior and senior years ready for the workplace. My classes for PhD students also
focus on the more practical side of the research process. This is to get students out
of the mindset of reading and doing homework into the practice of trial-and-error
that is crucial for doing research.
