Teaching Philosophy In order to feel confident in our philosophy about teaching we must know how learning occurs. What is learning? What is brain research? How do students learn? How can we promote learning?

Definition of Learning Definition of LEARNING: Merriam-Webster 1. Knowledge or skill acquired by instruction or study 2. Modification of a behavioral tendency by experience (as exposure to conditioning) So how does learning occur?

How the Brain Learns How Do Students Learn? 1. The first trip across the ravine is the hardest. How can you assist your students in their first trip coming across new content? 2. The climbers had significant background knowledge, which enabled them to be successful. How can you

integrate your students background knowledge in the classroom? 3. The climbers often crossed the ravine independently. How can you encourage your students to take many trips independently, i.e. become independent learners? How Do We Facilitate Learning? You now know Definition of learning

Brain research How Can We Best Facilitate Learning? Strengthening our students C.O.R.E. C.O.R.E. is acronym for connect, organize, reinforce, and engage. C.O.R.E. Connect

Message Damour Des Dauphius created by Sandro Del-Prete in 1987 Connect Brainstorm ways that you can help your students draw on previous experiences or existing schema in order to connect with your course content. Be prepared to share one idea.

Organize Connect Schema (mental framework) Background, experiences, and culture Organize Hierarchy and sequence

Frames, guides, and patterns R E Visual Organization I was thrilled Filled with adrenaline

And then I Saw the field And there was A cow right Where I was Supposed To land I Panicked

As I got Closer I Could see The cow was smiling I was thrilled, I was filled with adrenaline, and then I saw the field and there was a cow right

where I was supposed to land, I panicked! As I got closer, I could see the cow was smiling. Visual Organization WWI Ally: Italy Germanys Partners: Austria-Hungary,

world politics Organize Brainstorm ways that you can help your students organize their learning of the course content through hierarchies, sequences, frames, guides, and patterns. Be prepared to report out to the entire group.

Reinforce Connect Schema (mental framework) Background, experiences, and culture Organize Hierarchy and sequence

Frames, guides, and patterns Reinforce Review Reconnect and reorganize E Concept Maps for Reinforcement

Concept Maps for Reinforcement Reinforcement of Your Learning Generate a list of key words/ideas/concepts from this professional development. Share and modify your lists. Create your own concept map.

Engage Connect Schema (mental framework) Background, experiences, and culture Organize Hierarchy and sequence Frames, guides, and patterns

Reinforce Review Reconnect and reorganize Engage Meaningful experiences Hands on, minds on

Engage Your C.O.R.E. In learning about the C.O.R.E. In what ways were you engaged throughout this session?

Reflect Share with a partner Report out When We Come Back... 10 minute break What is Learner-Centered Instruction? Baker College:

Learner-centered instruction means that students are engaged participants in their learning and the instructor is responsible for creating and facilitating quality learning experiences that maximize student learning. The TC-LC Continuum TeacherCentered Teacher

LearnerCentered Who Learner Transmitted Knowledge

Constructed Summative Assessment Formative and summative Content coverage

Goal Student learning Two Examples Instructional Reflection In the first video:

What seemed to be learner-centered? Why? In the second video: What seemed to be learner-centered? Why? Consider the instructional approach used in one of the videos and how this could be used in your course. The TC LC Continuum Is it all or nothing? Should it be exactly 50/50?

What variables affect the TC LC continuum, i.e. what demands more teacher-centered instruction, and what demands more learner-centered instruction? For the course(s) that you teach, what is the ideal balance of these elements who is responsible, how knowledge is acquired, the type(s) of assessment used, and the goal of instruction?

What is one of your best LCI practices? What are other facultys LCI practices? SHARING BEST LCI best PRACTICES

Sharing Best LCI Practices Think Pair Share 336 3 minutes to think 3 partners 6 minutes to share

What? How? When? Why? Teacher/Student Analogy Teacher is to student as ____________________ is to ____________________.

How are these analogies related to a teaching philosophy? What is a teaching philosophy? A self-reflective statement of your Values Beliefs Attitude

So What? What purpose does your philosophy have after today? Where can you learn more about teaching philosophies? Will I be asked to revisit or refine my philosophy in the future? Why?

In The Future For future reading see the Support Documents tab, Faculty Focus Special Report. During your instructional evaluation, this would be a great way to further develop and showcase your professional identity. This will be a component of Quality Teaching Tier II and III.
