Hi! I am Hong K. Sung, Professor of Computer Science, University of Central Oklahoma. Thank you for visiting my site.
My goal of teaching is to help students learn core principles in the computer science discipline as a means to accomplish their purpose of life. With the knowledge of principles and with the ability of applying them in solving problems in life, students may become responsible members of the community where they belong, contributing in the community by helping others in need.
To reach the goal, I try to use various methods of teaching in consideration of students’ diversity in learning and perception styles. I encourage students to learn the value of cooperating together and helping others.
I believe that it is crucial for students of computer science to learn skills of teaching themselves in the rapidly changing environment of technologies and tools in the discipline. I also believe that it is crucial for students of computer science to learn to work as a team to solve a larger scale of problems as the complexity of problems, technologies, and tools grows in an unprecedented way.
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline." (Proverbs 1:7)
"When teachers no longer know how to perform the function of reading books WITH their students, they are forced to lecture AT them instead." (Mortimer Adler, How to Read a Book)
