As an instructor for Ashford, I truly believe that creating an environment for effective learning should consist of building a community of shared knowledge. We as educators have a duty to create an atmosphere that challenges our students to be self-thinkers, especially because not all of them learn the same way. It is my duty as an instructor to ensure each student is given the proper support needed to be successful.”
