Instructor’s Expectations

A priority of Professor Tolan's has been to develop a lifelong love of learning in her students so that after a particular course is over, they will have refined many of the skills that are necessary for the attainment and expression of knowledge.

A continual focus on the development of reading and writing skills and the use of technology as a learning facilitator helps her to achieve her goals. She also emphasizes each topic’s relevance to contemporary society in order to build enthusiasm for the subject matter. Students are encouraged to actively participate in all of her classes.
