Strengthening Your Teaching Philosophy through Reflection on Your Beliefs about Teaching and Learning Institutional Repository Document uri icon


  • Beliefs about teaching and learning are core parts of a teaching philosophy and guide instructional interactions with students. Since beliefs can be difficult to articulate, we do not always take the time to express our beliefs in a teaching philosophy statement or discuss them with colleagues. This presentation will provide a reflective space for considering your beliefs about teaching and learning. First, the results of study exploring the teaching and learning beliefs held by teaching librarians at doctoral universities will be described. Then, the conversation will shift to connecting teaching and learning beliefs to our instruction sessions. Through activities for self-reflection, participants will leave with new insights about their personal beliefs about teaching and learning.
