I hate to label myself as “an adult educator”, “an instructor in educational leadership”, “HRD guy (Human resource development)”, “a K-20 education person” or “an avid education researcher” because I firmly believe in  what Carl Rogers said, “you can not teach another individual directly.” I enjoy this “helping profession” as popularized by Malcolm Knowles. I enjoy being called a co-learner in the learning process in this learning society. I have been fortunate that different universities have asked me to teach the following courses and through teaching these courses, I have become a better helper in this helping profession.

In addition to teaching College English in China for 8 years and College Chinese in Kansas, USA for 2 years, Dr. Wang has been teaching the following courses for different universities both at home and abroad (face to face/blended learning; fully online):

  1. Leadership I, II and III
  2. Program Development and Evaluation
  3. Curriculum Development in Career Technical Education and Adult Education
  4. Assessment and Evaluation of Adult Learning in Career and Technical Education
  5. History and Philosophy of Career and Technical Education (Higher Education included)
  6. Principles of Adult Education
  7. Human Performance Improvement
  8. Management Competencies
  9. Administrative Leadership (Leadership Theory and Practice)
  10. Research Methods
  11. Administrative Human Resource Management
  12. Training the Trainer

This is not a complete list of college courses I have taught thus far. Regarding my teaching effectiveness, I was considered one of the popular instructors in China, Kansas and Arkansas. That was why I was invited to teach on TV and state radio in 1990 and 1991 in China. Unfortunately, I don’t keep those teaching evaluations by my former students in China  or in those two states in the United States. However, I do keep teaching evaluations by students in CA and in FL. I love my students no matter where they are from. They are my inspirations. My students’ concerns/issues in taking courses with me become my research topics in my classes. Whenever I can,  I involve my students in researching, writing and publishing. Someday in the future, I will be able to create a research foundation via which I will be able to support some master level and doctoral students financially so that the best minds will be attracted to the current graduate program.
