Tutor profile: Christopher D.
Subject: Study Skills
You have a semester long research paper due in economics that will be the basis for a comprehensive course exam. How would you prepare for the exam?
As I compile and analyze resources I will outline relevant findings and information according to subject area and concept. I will also provide myself with an accompanying annotated bibliography that includes detailed discussion of key concepts and concordance..
Subject: Library and Information Science
How would you approach providing research surrounding current climate change projection and models?
I will locate three relevant resources or sources of information. One resource can be a recently published study from a subject area peer-review journal article that includes a through literature review and provides detailed analysis of model methodology and results. Another resource can be recently published data made available from a related government agency such as NASA, NOAA, USGS, or EPA cross referenced with independently referenced model methodologies and analysis. Another could take the form of previously published research published (no older than 5 to 10 years) in the forms mentioned above or in book form as comparative data and methodologies.
How would you describe your educational philosophy through established educational methodologies?
My approach to education is informed through methods developed around the philosophy of Zone of Proximal Development and Experiential Education. In the approach I develop hands on learning experiences that scaffold students toward application and recall.
