Teaching Philosophy

■ My Teaching Philosophy comes from my many years of being a student and a preceptor.
My belief is that the student is a big part of their own learning and that as the teacher I
can facilitate this learning. In keeping with adult nursing education, progressivism.
encompasses the learner and their capabilities through activities for lifelong learning
Malcolm Knowles’ Theory of Andragogy embraces the adult learner who is self-directed
and self-motivated while using their experiences to influence their learning through
relating the new knowledge to real life issues. In the educator role, I envision the multiple
aspects and methods of teaching to relate to students in varying circumstances.

■ Each persons’ experiences contribute to their vision, values and beliefs that influence
their contribution to education. A conducive safe learning environment with limited
distractions, proper lighting and comfortable seating allow learning to flow and stimulate
student interactions. Ready access to internet school resources with technical and
faculty support including simulation lab allows for independent exploration into relevant
nursing related areas. Affording adequate and varied clinical learning environments
ensure a more impressionable and lasting learning experience.
