Teaching

Michael A. Erskine, Ph.D. strives to be an outstanding teacher and mentor for all of his students. To do so, Dr. Erskine takes time to understand who his students are and why they have chosen information systems as their major. As the majority of students in information systems courses are pursuing business or information technology related careers, Dr. Erskine uses numerous real-world examples to help students make connections with their learning. Specifically, his courses are designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to function as business or information systems professionals. To ensure a valuable learning experience, four principle activities are applied:

  • A continuous development of a broad array of teaching skills, learning theories and making adjustments to meet the needs of students.
  • Challenging students with a variety of relevant assignments that evaluate their learning progress fairly and effectively.
  • Fostering student mastery of course material while simultaneously helping them to develop a broader understanding of information technology and how it is used in organizations today.
  • Extending learning beyond the classroom to develop opportunities for students to gain broader knowledge and experience relevant for their future as information systems professionals.

Demonstrating his commitment to teaching and learning, Dr. Erskine’s teaching evaluations, received at the University of Colorado Denver, are provided below. The detailed evaluation can be seen by selecting the course title. Along with the course title, the average instructor rating, department average and campus average ratings are shown in parentheses, respectively.
