Who am I as a Teacher: No Really, Who am I?
As a teacher, it is easy to get caught up in covering the important concepts and facilitating the necessary skills. But, how do we decided what is important and necessary? While part of this is driven by our disciplines and curriculum, some of it is driven by who we are as teachers – by our teaching philosophy. What is that? Can we articulate it (i. e., share it in writing or otherwise)? If we cannot articulate it or have not done so recently, how effective can it be in guiding our decisions? This session will walk participants through some exercises to discover and/or refine a clearly articulated teaching philosophy. The session is designed to facilitate the expression of your teaching philosophy to clearly guide your own teaching as well as to articulate to others (colleagues, students, chairs, search committees) who you are as a teacher.
