  • OCOB - Faculty Spotlight: Taryn Stanko
    favorite part about teaching at Cal Poly is the emphasis on Learn by Doing and the enthusiasm How have you Learned by Doing personally I tackled computer programming by learning on the job How have you challenged your students I do a number of simulations that put students in high pressure competitive situations to challenge their ability to think on their feet and make decisions in the context of ambiguous information In doing so I try to push students outside their comfort zone so that they can better understand what their strengths and limitations are and thus help them grow What s been the biggest challenge in your career The biggest challenge I continually face is striving for balance Life is a balancing act in dividing my time between the different parts of my job working on research projects going through the publication process teaching in the classroom and working with students on projects outside the classroom This juggling act amounts to what I refer to as a high class problem too many things that I enjoy doing and always wishing there was a little more time available for each Who is your go to for faculty collaboration at Cal Poly Over the last few months I ve been enjoying working with Professor Jim Sena on new research projects exploring employee attitudes toward information technology use in organizations How have your students changed in the last five years Students have become more technologically savvy in the last five years and have become increasingly skilled at harnessing online resources as part of their daily life at work and school What has been your favorite moment from this last year of teaching I ve had students say that they asked for things in the context of a salary job offer negotiation that
