About Jolanta

I believe that students learn the best when they are expected to take an active role in their own learning. My role as a teacher is to provide them with the highest standard of guidance, accommodating the students’ various learning styles. A simple social activity, which takes place during my first interaction with students, gives me an opportunity to acquire some knowledge about their cognitive dimensions. In my lectures I use different practices to involve students in the subject of the day: exploring understanding of scientific terminology, inquiry approach (with questions to guide reflections), brain storming, simple case studies involving daily-life examples. I believe that the latter is particularly important because, in my opinion, people learn the best by fitting new knowledge into existing understanding.
Learning is an active and dynamic process. During the class, students come to value self-reliance, collaboration and cooperative learning through individual, small group and large group projects. Once they are involved with the experiments and are working in groups, I become a student myself: I merge into each group and ask them questions to test their logical thinking, and the students become teachers. There I can work individually with each of them, in the spirit of student-centered learning with respect to their unique personalities and diversity.
Motivation and enthusiasm are other important factors of effective learning: “the instructor’s enthusiasm during the class was always stimulating” is a comment often seen in my course evaluations. I do teach with a true passion, and I use all my professional and personal experience to pass on my knowledge. I know my students by their names. My students invite me to take part in their outside activities such as art performances or sport competitions, and even though it is not the area of my expertise, I feel very proud of them when they do their best.
I strongly believe that education is a vehicle to a better future. I understand the struggle that people from different backgrounds have to fit into a new environment. Showing my students, that their differences need not be insurmountable obstacles to gain success in education and professional life is one of many challenges I take to the classroom every day.
