About Me

Sergio Pisano Greetings and welcome to my Website. I'm a Doctor of Education, Engineer, and Professor with over 25 years of experience in a wide variety of roles and disciplines. I have lived in 3 different countries, speak 3 languages (Spanish, Italian, and English), and have a passion for teaching, research, and technology. I teach a variety of college courses including: Introduction to Microcomputer Usage (CGS1060), Introduction to Engineering (EGS1001C), Introduction to Web Page Development (CTD1800), and Computer Aided Drawing & Design (ETD1340). My current research is focused on novel teaching methodologies such as Game Based Learning and Gamification.

In terms of my teaching philosophy, I believe that every student is unique and so is every class that I teach, therefore, it is important to always listen and address every situation individually. It is also vital to explain and show students practical applications of concepts taught. Students that understand why it is important to learn something and how they can apply it in the real world will develop a better appreciation and retention of the material. In my view, learning should be a fun and engaging "experience" with lessons that go beyond what it is presented to us in class or in a textbook while teaching is a joyful opportunity to introduce students to new and useful subjects, encourage and empower them, stimulate their imagination and curiosity, guide them in their academic journey, and hopefully make a difference in their lives.
