Six Questions That Will Bring Your Teaching Philosophy into Focus | Faculty Focus

Six Questions That Will Bring Your Teaching Philosophy into Focus | Faculty Focus | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Earlier this year, a couple of contributions to The Teaching Professor (Haave 2014) and Faculty Focus (Weimer 2014) discussed the place of learning philosophies in our teaching. The online comments to Weimer’s blog post (2014) made me think more about how we as instructors need to be careful to bridge instructivist and constructivist teaching approaches for students not yet familiar with taking responsibility for their own learning (Venkatesh et al 2013).

This is an excellent resource article that provides key questions which can bring focus within your teaching and learning environment and your professional development.

Do you ever stop to think about what and why you are doing things ? we ask our students to do this but do we as teachers ??

Assessment vs. Accountability

Assessment vs. Accountability | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

We need to begin to articulate our vision and our plan to put balance on the board.  At the very least, we need to have profound insight into what needs to be done locally and coalesce our communities around an educational agenda...one with standards and accountability and more and with children at its core. We believe we will be heard and, then, we must be ready. At least we hope that is what happens.

This is an interesting article of double standards in education and the lack of "common sense" when it comes to assessment vs. accountability.

This is why the RMUTL English camp was such a failure...It was  passive, boring and not a functional English language learning experience.

 

The Presidents "experts" are outsiders and not qualified language professionals...just sales people.

 

NO one is listening to the learners or the qualified teachers...Dr. Wiggins listens and other professionals listen too!

 

It was a very sad language learning experience and another complete failure from administration.

A Classroom Where No One Cheats | The Atlantic

A Classroom Where No One Cheats | The Atlantic | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
A new book says it's possible—but only if teachers get their students to care about learning for learning's sake.

 

While I’d love to place the blame for this offense fully on my students’ shoulders, I can’t. My teaching methods and classroom habits are often as much to blame as their response to them.  If my teaching practices create an atmosphere in which students resort to cheating rather than rely on their own hard work and discovery, I’m doing something wrong.

This article address assessment and cheating by providing interesting perspectives of the choices we make...as teachers and as learners. In Southeast Asia the pressure and culture to cheat is very strong..."achieve the best grades at all costs."

This is so true! Our preconceived ideas can have such an impact on the children.  We need to be very careful, that we remain positive and try to be unbiased in the classroom.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, December 12, 2013 10:39 PM

This has always been the case, but it particularly pertinent to how studets will use technology as well. This will line up to your expectations - if you expect them to mess around with their iPads - they will. If you expect they will be engaged in learning and model this - they will. 

John Gougoulis's curator insight, December 13, 2013 2:19 AM

It is a truism but teachers behaviours are infuenced by their expectations of students
