"I love to create a spirit of inquiry in my classes. I want the students to engage with learning process as much as I do. At the same time, I also expect my students to sweat and be challenged. As a teacher, I have high expectations of myself so I have high expectations of my students as well."
Dr. Benjamin Hidalgo's classes are conducted, as he puts it, "far from the traditional 'passive' way of learning," i.e. study, show up for class, answer some questions on an exam, etc. They are more casual, where he encourages conversation and does not shy from debate.
Dr. Shavindrie ("Shavi") Cooray examines the relationships between humans and technology with her students by embracing technology and by looking at the bigger picture - something she has done extensively in her Ph.D. research and as a former analyst in the corporate world.
When Assistant Professor of Communication Jeff Lemberg arrived at Curry College, part of his charge was moving the program curriculum into the multimedia world - a world that has become increasingly important, especially within the media industry, and one that demands a broad set of skills for success.
"I believe that as a professor, you not only have to bring relevance from a technical perspective, but you have to bring something of interest to students. We are tasked with constantly answering the question 'so what?' It's our job to tell the stories that answer that question."
Energy...It is a word that Professor Jennifer Balboni constantly uses when describing her Criminal Justice classes at Curry College. "I tell my students at the beginning of each semester, 'In my class, I need you to bring your 'A' game...everyday.' We really do take it to another level."
"What I love most about video is the ever-changing uses for the skill set," says Gibbs. "Today video is the key source of information and entertainment on the Internet, and it is giving this generation of students hundreds of new employment choices."
"Literature is a force to help people open their eyes and expand their thinking," says Allan Hunter, professor of English and Honors. "The stories we discuss in class nudge students to examine the important issues that everyone faces. Literature helps us sort out life. It helps us think more clearly. And when we think more clearly, we write better and we communicate better."
Dr. Katherine Morrison likes to challenge her students. She believes that as long as a mutual respect exists in the classroom, they tend to learn more by questioning her authority. Perhaps it's because she's been challenging herself all these years.
Mathematics Professor Tracy Wang has always tried to give her students a sense of what life is like in her native China. But she recognized the distinct difference between telling and showing.
