Discussion of Teaching Philosophies

Teaching philosophies can be very important element in education as they can make a powerful impact on student’s performance, motivation and desire to learn, memory, the process of gaining knowledge, understanding of the new information, and the overall learning process. In general, all teaching philosophies are student-centered, which allow educators to focus on students’ needs, and assist and teach them within the classroom ensuring a higher level of students’ success (theedadvocate.org) Some teaching philosophies are based on simplistic views, teaching methods and stretegies, which allow educators to set close connections within learning environment and motivate students to work harder. Some teachers prefer teaching philosophies that are based on real life examples, discussions, critical thinking, and evidence. Such teaching philosophies help educators to evaluate students learning abilities in general and motivate them to better collaborate and share knowledge/experiences with others. These types of philosophies are characterized by fairness, engagement, and relevance. Other teaching philosophies can significantly differ and encourage educators to examine, question, challenge, and ask their students in order to stimulate learning environment. Finally, some of my teachers prefer to practice teaching philosophies that are based on additional class sessions, in which they focus more deeply on the course material and encourage students to engage into the topic that go beyond the course requirements. Such teaching philosophies can make a positive impact on students learning abilities in general, help to discover their inner potential, develop knowledge and additional talents. I consider that teaching philosophies that are based on simplistic views, real life examples, critical thinking, and collaboration can be more beneficial and effective both for educators and students. They help to build a trustful environment and close student-teacher relationships, which in its turn motivate and inspire students to learn harder and achieve better results. Here each student learns to make connection with real life events, participate in discussions, search for evidence, and closely interact with an environment. I think simplistic teaching philosophies that encourage critical thinking and real life interactions help educators to evaluate students learning abilities in general and motivate them to better collaborate and share knowledge/experiences with others.
