Teaching Philosophy

Dr. Charusheel Tripathi’s pedagogical philosophy is critical reasoning, accompanied by experiential learning. She begins her semester with insights from a popular self-growth text (grounded on empirical research) and urges her students to adopt any one idea from it. She tries to maintain a class environment where students feel free to question, argue and even fight for the cause they believe in. She tries to instil vociferousness among her pupils, while at the same time acknowledging and respecting the quiet-cum-reclusive demeanour of the introverts within the classroom. She believes that if children feel respected, with their individuality recognized, participation automatically follows.
