Urffer's teaching philosophy is "I want everyone to have a positive learning experience in my classes.  Since coming from industry, I'm able to relate the curriculum to real life, which makes the learning experience more meaningful.  I treat the classroom as though it's a job and students are there to perform a specific job - I'm there to facilitate the learning.
