Dr. Bhattarai is the Chair of the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at FRCC, Larimer Campus, Fort Collins, CO. In addition, he also teaches economics courses, both on campus and online.
Teaching Philosophy
Dr. Bhattarai believes that students should be exposed to the various ways of learning, obtaining, and analyzing information. He emphasizes logical explanation rather than memorization of concepts in economics. His teaching philosophy embraces an interdisciplinary approach. Dr. Bhattarai believes that it is important to educate students with principles and skills to help them understand the relationships within and between various academic disciplines. He is open to all points of views, and expects active student participation in the discussions. He aspires, not to finish a certain chapter in a given period, but rather to inspire students to understand, appreciate, and further study the relationships among economic, social, and political issues.
