Additional Information
Hello! My name is George Byun and I am a Korean-American living in Incheon, South Korea. Over the past 20 years living here in South Korea, I have learned several things in regards to my teaching philosophy, my character, and my personal traits. I believe that education never stops no matter what degree one pursues. Whether in academia or life experiences, learning is a process of understanding and acceptance. These things can be influenced by culture, society, and literature. Over the years during my education I have learned from several professors the value of grammar, speech, intonation, syntax, and how philosophy applies to daily communication in our lives. What we say and what we intend to say are not the same thing according to Ferdinand Saussure (a Swiss linguist). This is why I believe one must be educated to express himself/herself thoroughly without creating misunderstandings. For this reason, I believe that one never stops learning as long as he/she has the curiosity to learn.

Personally for myself, growing up as an Asian American can be quite difficult to know one’s true self between two cultures. Completing my studies in the United States and in South Korea were not the same experience in my opinion. I have learned to value the strengths of both realms. While enduring hardships financially, I believe this was the time where my character building began. I have learned to maintain perseverance, hard-work, and a positive mind-set regardless of the conditions due to circumstances. As well, I have developed team building skills as I have learned that one cannot complete certain tasks on his/her own. Even 20 years later, I am still learning and developing not only my character but also an understanding by also an “Appreciation for every individual self.” (Jacques Lacan).

As for my teaching plan, through the 20 years as an English educator in Korea, I have a firm belief that learning can happen only if one has the curiosity to learn. For this reason, although I still believe that one must be thoroughly educated academically, he/she must as well maintain a high volume of interest for the students to be attracted to the material at hand. For these reasons, I propose three methods to my teaching skills.

First, all lessons should be ‘Task-based (R.Richards ****) and Scaffolded (Jerome Brunner ****)”. If the students are included in the lessons instead of just lecture-based (pigeon fed Burnet ****), the students will reduce the curiosity to learn thus the lectures become more difficult week by week.

Second, all lessons should be media-centered. These days students react more towards visuals than theories. (Total Physical Response ‘TPR’ James Asher) By using media students have more of an opportunity to react visually, emotionally, or mentally. For these reasons, team project building skills using Powerpoint (PPT) projects impact student learning abilities through peer education while using ‘Content-based’ materials.

Finally, I believe ‘Classroom Setting’ can influence student’s learning capabilities. (McCorskey & McVetta ****). The tradition setting of the classroom separates the instructor and learner creating a ‘Pigeon fed’ environment. However, statistics favor Group Pods, Horseshoe, or Roundtable. By doing so, the environment is shifted not only from the instructor but as well learner to learn and instructor to learner.

These are the three reasons I try to implement in my philosophy of teaching. Thank you for taking the time to read my teaching plan.
