Teaching Philosophy

As each semester begins, I advocate to bring the most current topics and tools into the curriculum for each course taught in our Information Technology program. For this field of study, I am a firm believer in the progressivist school of thought that emphasizes “learning through your experiences.” Or, more simply put, learn by doing. Together, we will explore the content of the course; however, the focus is on you and your learning style.

Engagement and activity are critical learning tools in the courses I teach. These methods use much hands-on skill building. Whether you are developing a program with Java or managing a computer network through a server, there is a built-in set of cognitive skills that must be nurtured through hands-on learning, repetition and trial and error. Your skills––as you develop them––will morph into a learning experience that provides you with the analytics and foresight to be an effective contributor to business as well as society.

Bio

Joseph Oberto have served as an educator in the collegiate and K-12 school systems since 2005. He has taught in public and private institutions at both levels.

Information technology instruction has always been his focus throughout his career. He also taught additional courses in the areas of mathematics and business. Originally, he started his career in the business and IT sectors, eventually moving into the realm of teaching. The experience in two career industries has provided Oberto with valuable insight and the credibility to use “real world” examples and expectations in the classroom.

Education has been a hallmark of his career. “Even though I am a teacher here at Central Penn College, I will always be a student of my discipline… constantly learning about new technology or new methodologies of instruction,” says Oberto. “One of the greatest aspects of the technology industry is that is always changing and improving itself.”
