Renewing Your Inner Teacher
Support for Sustaining Your Teaching Practice
As faculty, we have a great deal of control over the climate we create for learning by uncovering our own metacognitive processes, philosophy of teaching, and insights about disciplinary thinking. Sharing these processes in the presence of students models the type of thinking and organization of thought processes we hope to inculcate in our students.
Reflecting on the nature of teaching and our assumptions about learning can offer new insights into how we do what we do and influence our philosophy of education. During the session you will also receive resources for sustaining a teaching life.
After completing this session, you will be able to:
- Identify assumptions and biases which may negatively impact both teaching and learning;
- Compare methods for sharing metacognitive processes in the classroom; and
- Consider how instructor modeling of self-reflection and disciplinary thinking can transform classroom climate.
