Teaching Philosophy

Professor Pogorelova’s teaching philosophy synthesizes principles of Lev Vigotsky’s constructivism, Nevitt Sanford’s challenge and development theory, and the culture model. Together, these educational models comprise the three pillars of Professor Pogorelova’s pedagogical approach: (1) active learning, (2) high standards, and (3) diversity. With respect to the first pillar, Professor Pogorelova integrates project-based and problem-based learning, and educational technologies that allow students active exploration of the concepts and frameworks taught in class. With respect to the second pillar, Professor Pogorelova provides a rigorous and intellectually stimulating academic environment to facilitate the holistic development of students, in line with Vigotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development (where the tasks are achievable yet challenging) and with Sanford’s Challenge and Support theory, which stipulates that only when students overcome challenges do they attain meaningful development and maturation. With respect to the third pillar, Professor Pogorelova adheres to the cultural paradigm of student development, which embraces diversity and allows students to consider multiple points of view and acquire a view of the world congruent with a cultural perspective.
