As a Graduate Instructor (Photo credit: NIU CSEAS)

I have given lectures, taught my own classes, and assisted courses in diverse settings – North American, Japanese, and Indonesian universities. I also hold a Graduate Teaching Certificate from NIU’s Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center. As an educator, I believe in the principle of democratic education, where everyone can learn from each other and exchanges of different views are encouraged. My teaching philosophy can be found here.
