14 Teaching Philosophy Goal of any educator is to change learners knowledge, attitudes and/or behaviors in a predetermined direction Instruction, in turn, is influenced by the values, beliefs, prior experiences, and knowledge of the individual faculty member Each faulty member must be able to articulate her/his philosophy of education Make it relevant for you

15 Philosophy of Education Identify your aims, values, and beliefs about teaching Highlight key aspects deemed important to your teaching (e.g., specific teaching methods, assessment approaches) Specific contextual factors that affect or modify your approach (e.g., audience, discipline, purpose) Create an authentic, coherent, and connected presentation Be reflective – even include areas in which you want/need to improve*

18 Helpful tips Seek to participate in courses that have formal systematic evaluations of teaching as part of your teaching responsibility And/or seek your own input from learners about your teaching Dont assume that everything will be evaluated Encourage your learners to complete their evaluations
