Irma Gibson — Albany State University

"Mindtap has been beneficial to me as well as the students by uniquely enhancing my ability to expound upon my hands on and interactive pedagogy philosophy as well as incorporate real world teaching methods. As a result, the needs of every type of student learner are met: visual, auditory and experiential."

Dr. Gibson is an Associate Professor in the Department of Social Work at the UNSINKABLE Albany State University in Southwest Georgia.
