Mr. Ransingh Tamang, Lecturer
Philosophy of teaching and learning:
My guiding philosophy states that the journey of teaching and learning is continuous and lifelong. It is not only limited to what we learn in classroom settings but it is beyond that level. In this educational journey, teacher possesses a major role in building student’s personality. By knowing that each learner has different strengths with different learning needs, it is the responsibility of a teacher to facilitate student in gaining knowledge, skills, and critical thinking by implementing various innovative strategies. I strongly believe that the integration of technology is a great equalizer that helps foster a student centered-learning. The technology rich environment allows students to venture away from isolated learning into successful partner and small group setting.
