ANTSHE Conference 2018|                       

Together we can make a difference    



Dr. Fortune Taylor

Professor,  Strayer University and University of Phoenix


As a former university administrator, researcher, and current position as a professor, I continue to explore teaching strategies to facilitate distributed leadership and enhance teaching and learning at all levels in education. I earned a Ph.D. in education from Capella University, and an M.S. in Organizational Management, and B.A. in Liberal Arts from Pfeiffer University in Misenheimer, North Carolina.

I have been employed in online education since 2003 and I continue to enjoy every engagement with students. My career in educational training started with a 19 year career with Eastern Airline. I took advantage of an opportunity to join General Motors at the onset of vehicle communication, you probably know it as OnStar. I continued in corporate training departments in managerial leadership positions, in finance, the international fragrance industry and customer relationship management until I realized the opportunities available in higher education that allowed me to reach students globally. I knew it was the lifetime career preference for me.

To instruct someone... is not a matter of getting him to commit results to mind. Rather, it is to teach him to participate in the process that makes possible the establishment of knowledge. We teach a subject not to produce little living libraries on that subject, but rather to get a student to think mathematically for himself, to consider matters as an historian does, to take part in the process of knowledge-getting. Knowing is a process not a product. (Bruner 72)

My personal philosophy of education has been changing since the first moment I stepped into an education course. However, I don't see this as something that is negative. In fact, I think that a teacher's personal philosophy of education should forever be evolving. Teachers should continually make efforts to inform themselves of new differentiated instructional strategies that help to facilitate learning in the classroom.
