My Philosophy of Teaching and Learning
Abstract: The journey of teaching and learning is continuous and lifelong. It is not only limited to what we learn in classroom settings but it is beyond that level. In this educational journey, teacher possesses a major role in building student’s personality. By knowing that each learner has different strengths with different learning needs, it is the responsibility of a teacher to facilitate student in gaining knowledge, skills, and critical thinking by implementing various innovative strategies. Moreover, the positive and conducive environment along with teachers support creates a good milieu for student’s lifelong learning. This paper addresses my teaching and learning philosophy under the perspective of student, teacher, learning environment, and teaching learning process.
