My Teaching Philosophy:
Three-Way Transformational Learning
I have invented a new teaching approach of what I call “three-way transformational learning”. As its name suggests, through three-way interactions, this approach seeks to transform the thinking and practice of three parties of participants, including the professor (myself), the students, and the industry collaborators, so that we all learn from and influence each other by contributing our unique expertise, information, and resources to the common knowledge ecosystem. I serve not only as a professor in the sense of lecturing and mentoring but also as a knowledge manager who maintains, sustains and grows knowledge resources (e.g., evidence/theory-based materials, past cases, experiences, and contacts) in the three-way ecosystem.

“I enjoyed my experience with Victor’s students last year, and the “real world” challenge was a unique experience for me and a lot of fun. When I gave my presentation I posed a risk management problem to the students, then who then put a lot of time and expertise of their own into solving it, and I went back several weeks later to hear their presentations. Many of them are already working and some are already our colleagues here in the bank or future colleagues (in late December I coincidentally ran into one of them in the Overstreet and learned that she now works for Wells, one floor below me).” —Philip Stafford (Director – Country Risk Analytics, Americas).
