The implementation of Philosophy of Teaching
A Positive Learning Environment To foster a positive learning environment, I’ll create an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere which values diversity and promotes student participation. Students will also have the opportunity to own their learning by engaging in inquiry-based, hands-on activities.
To build relationships with my students personally, I’ll make an effort at getting to know them as individuals. You can do this through individual conversations or class discussions and by regularly checking in. Students can also count on me to reach out to them outside of class to offer support and guidance.
Evaluation and Grading Student Performance: To evaluate student performance, I use various assessment methods. Summative and formative. This will involve observations, written assignments, exams, quizzes and exams. My goal is to provide feedback and opportunities for students to review their work. I want to give students constructive, detailed feedback to help them improve.
Aiming at Different Learning Needs and Cultural Influences: By being sensitive to the differences between my students, I will be able to adapt my teaching methods in order for them all. Teaching materials will reflect my students’ cultural and linguistic diversity and allow them to bring their culture and perspective into the classroom. Students will have the opportunity to learn and be supported by me in small groups.
Technology in the Classroom Online resources, software, and tools can be used to assist students in their research and facilitate online collaboration.
Multiple Learning Methods: In my assignments I incorporate visual, auditory, as well as kinesthetic learning. There will be opportunities to self-direct learning such as research projects and student-led discussion and presentations.
My goal is to provide students with opportunities to learn and to foster a learning environment that encourages diversity and active participation. By providing constructive feedback, I support individual learning as well as student growth.
