“I love to see the mind’s light bulbs turn on for students.”

Business administration instructor John Zink has studied a variety of theories about how students learn, including experiential learning, observational learning, and social learning. He combines those theories in the classroom to create his own interactive learning environment.

"I teach most classes in a discussion format," he says. "It helps make the content more alive and relevant."

Zink's students also benefit from his outside experience leading seminars on accounting, management, and leadership for the Kentucky Small Business Development Center. "I love helping businesses in the community change their systems and procedures to help ensure that they survive and succeed," he says.

Zink is constantly impressed with his students, whom he gets to know well in Transylvania's small classes. "They're serious, dedicated students who really understand why they're here, and that makes teaching them worthwhile," he says. "The breadth provided by a liberal arts education combined with the depth of specialized education in a particular discipline creates new and different ways of thinking. Changing lives for the better is what teaching at Transylvania is all about."
