Hinchliffe- A personal philosophy of instruction and assistance: the foundation for information literacy and reference practice

  1. 1. Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe lisalibrarian@gmail.com A Personal Philosophy of Instruction and Assistance: The Foundation for Information Literacy And Reference Practice
  2. 2. A philosophy statement is a powerful framework for exploring one's beliefs about instruction and assistance, the role of the librarian, student learning, classroom leadership, assessment, teaching and learning styles, and programmatic development. Unfortunately, developing a personal philosophy statement can be a daunting task. Librarians may find though that having a statement is necessary (e.g., promotion dossier) and/or desirable (e.g., personal reflection). The workshop will offer a structured and scaffolded approach to drafting a philosophy statement and identifying evidence from one's information literacy and reference practice as the framework for a portfolio. Workshop participants will be introduced to two tools, which are freely available – the Teaching Perspectives Inventory and the Teaching Goals Inventory – in order to explore their own personal understandings of instruction and assistance. Then, through the reflective lens outlined by Stephen Brookfield – autobiographical, student, peers and scholarly literature – participants will further examine their beliefs and practices. Participants will have a draft of a statement of personal philosophy at the conclusion of the workshop.
  3. 3. Tell a story of a teacher who influenced you. What are the qualities of the teacher that inspired you?

Teaching philosophies reconsidered: A conceptual model for the development and evaluation of teaching philosophy statements. The International Journal for Academic Development, 7(1), pp. 83-97.
