Hi My Name is Karl Ostler,
I am the Site Moderator - also Technical Illustration and Documentation adjunct instructor at Weber State University.
In 2001 I chose to pursue a part-time college teaching career. As an adjunct professor, teaching has been and continues to be a very rewarding endeavor. However as an adjunct professor, I have experience a number of challenges in planning and delivering courses and in managing the various issues that often affect my teaching. In further anticipation of these challenges, I have attempted to develop sound strategies for addressing them. One area in particular is a strategy to extend the student learning experience to outside of the traditional lecture style classroom. A second area of particular interest is to extend student learning to be participative and to challenge students in critical thinking while solving ill-structured real world types of problems.
