    Lyn Hoffmann, Ph.D.



    description of Teacher:
    Mutual respect among students and the instructor is important. I try to create an atmosphere of trust where individuals count and questions and opinions can be offered freely. I feel that students can be challenged without feeling overwhelmed or inadequate. Learning can be fun!

     
    Teacher's qualifications:
    Dr. Lyn Hoffmann received a Ph.D. in Ecosystem Science with a specialization in Restoration Ecology. She has been a college educator for over eight years, both on-campus and online. She has taught a variety of Natural Science undergraduate and graduate-level courses. She lives in Florida,U.S.A. where she is an avid naturalist, birder, and saltwater angler.
     
    Teacher's preferred teaching style:
    I believe that good teaching methods include clearly identified learning goals and objectives, good organization of course material, meaningful assignments, relevant assessment, and, above all, an emphasis on interaction between the students and the instructor. The Internet provides a wealth of current information, and I incorporate Internet research into my courses to supplement the text.
