Teaching is a continuous learning process which requires a retrospective reflections based on actions taken during teaching. “Active learning” is the central theme of my vision on learning and teaching. From learning point of view, I strongly believe that the students should engage with the course-related activities by doing things and thinking and evaluating the related subject in the course instead of simply watching, listening and taking notes. The main reason that I am dedicated for “active learning” is that the students can remember and learn 70-90% of what they do, say and write in the class, whereas this percentage is below 50% when they only hear and write the things in the class.
