  • Welcome, everyone. My name is Scott McLeod. I’ll be your instructor for this course. My five colleagues, who I will introduce in a few minutes, will be assisting with the class. You’ll get a chance to hear more from us later this hour. Right now I’d like us to get started right away. Groups of 3 or 4, please – no 2s, no 5s

    7. 35. Scott’s Teaching Philosophy <ul><li>My teaching philosophy is pretty straightforward. I believe that </li></ul><ul><li>students actively and individually make sense of what they learn by integrating it into what they already understand. Because by definition teaching cannot occur without learning, I should always seek and value students' points of view in order to understand students' thought processes and knowledge acquisition. </li></ul>
    8. 36. Scott’s Teaching Philosophy <ul><li>My teaching philosophy is pretty straightforward. I believe that </li></ul><ul><li>my ultimate responsibility as a teacher is to create a learning environment that facilitates learning for every student. My ultimate goal is to make each class the best learning experience students have ever had. </li></ul>
