Teaching Philosophy

Margaret’s favorite part of teaching at the University level is interacting with students and learning about how their specific background molds their perspective on media and culture. She believes that no one lives outside of culture and realizes it is sometimes difficult to assess our own role within it, especially when it is over-saturated with media and technology. Margaret’s goal is to give her students a different lens to see the world through because when we learn to deconstruct the media messages that surround us, we can become a more aware media consumer.

Teaching Philosophy

Dr. Bauer’s teaching philosophy is simple: put the students first in everything.  This philosophy stems from his professional background in sales and leadership and the focus on the customer and employees.  Dr. Bauer seeks to elevate student understanding of the material while simultaneously preparing them for the real world application of the material being learned.  Anyone can read a book to become knowledgeable, the real difference lies in why that knowledge matters and how it applies in the real world.  Dr. Bauer does everything within his abilities to prepare students for their life after college, whether that is the workplace or graduate school.
