My Experience Working At Manchester University

1379 words - 6 pages

This section reflects my experience during the past years teaching at Manchester University College of Pharmacy (2011-2014), in which I taught two classes and six courses. The first course was Pharmaceutics I (PHRM312), with 63 students in the 2012 fall semester and 73 students in the 2013 fall semester. The second course was Pharmaceutics II (PHRM313), with 63 students in the 2013 spring semester and 73 students in the 2014 spring semester. The third course was Pharmacy Practice lab I (PHRM330), with 73 students in the 2013 fall semester. The fourth course was Pharmacy Practice lab II (PHRM331), with 63 students in the 2013 spring semester and 73 students in the 2014 spring semester. The fifth course was Intro to IPT (PHRM450), with 63 students in the 2013 fall semester. The sixth course was Pharmacy Practice lab III (PHRM430), with 63 students in the 2013 fall semester. The challenge in my first year of teaching is managing the class and course contents. The challenge in the latter is presenting some rather dry course material in an interesting way to engage the students.
Teaching Philosophy
My teaching philosophy has evolved through my experiences as a student, teacher, and a parent. The ultimate goal of our college is to prepare our students to be highly effective pharmacists through possessing the skills and confidence. In every course, I always carried high expectations for both the students and myself. I try to demonstrate enthusiasm, concern, creativity in each lecture. As an educator of student pharmacists, I believe in a few key concepts:
- “Every child should have a caring adult in their lives. And that's not always a biological parent or family member. It may be a friend or neighbor. Often times it is a teacher.”- Joe Manchin
Caring is essential to healthy development. Without that, people may come to see themselves in the negative ways. I learn caring through my teaching. Some of my students did not do well in the first exam or were absent for the lectures. In the beginning, I thought I couldn’t like that student. But I realized latterly what I should care the students although they are lagging or not self-disciplined. It is not just being nice to people, smiling at them and nodding. I asked each lagging student to my office asked about the reasons while I was still smiling. I helped them to work through their issues with respect. In each course, I get to know each student. In the classroom, I demonstrate that I valued diversity, which can be student questions in class, and appreciated similarities. I provide an atmosphere that values all the students. I attempt to instill a sense of caring within the classroom. This can be shown in my end of semester evaluation comments cited as below:
“The instructor created a welcoming and respectful learning environment.” (Appendix A)
“Dr. Yang is a really great professor. Really cares about her students and wants everyone to do well and understand topics.” (Appendix A)
- "Optimism is the faith...
