|I challenge students to innovate and outperform the conventional designs|
In this world there is no better purifier than knowledge, Bhagavad Gita: 4:38
I believe that a teacher has to assist the students to “learn” and to facilitate the “learning process” the best possible way. A teacher should work towards empowering or capacitating students with the necessary skills to take control of their own learning, guiding them along the way.
My teaching style expands beyond mere mathematics and formulae, and I have found that students relate better to real life examples. The methods I use in the classroom expose the students along the current research in the field, and I often quote along my own research experiences to help them grasp concepts better. Relevant videos demonstrating various aspects related to the module are screened.
I often challenge students to search for information beyond what is presented in the classroom.
Teaching is not confined only within formal classes, and it can also happen during informal conversations. I encourage students to drop by for discussions at any time.
Many final year projects under my supervision have been awarded with Best Thesis recognition and innovation awards reflecting the effectiveness of the teaching philosophy both inside and outside the class room.
A large proportional of my students have undertaken design challenges along electronics, mechanical operability, innovative algorithms and intelligent behaviour manifestation. These initiatives were outside the course requirements, and were purely based on the interest generated in the students as a result of the robotic modules that I teach.
