Approach to teaching
My approach to teaching involves striking a balance between theory and its practical use. I typically open with a leading question on a given topic to allow students to understand the process one takes to get to a software solution. This is followed by explaining the prerequsite theory and finished with remarks on implementation details.
I understand and appreciate that each student has their own approach to learning. Hence, for most topics featured in the lectures, I provide, in addition to standard lecture notes, written tutorials and online video materials. This allows students to cover the material at their own pace. Moreover, I frequently organise game jams and hackathons to enable students to practise their new skills and teamwork in a less formal environment.
