Teaching Philosophy

Dr Gupta has always found it rewarding to watch students put theory into practice. He believes in creating a space in the classroom where students may learn independently and express their creativity. This kind of instruction is partially carried out through discussions of various opportunities during lectures and questions. The utilisation of examples from everyday life also serves as a source of motivation, and connecting classroom discussions with either current affairs or my professional experience also helps to demonstrate to the students the value and significance of the subjects being taught.
