Over the course of 2015/2016 I completed a PG Cert for Teaching & Learning in Higher Education. As part of the course I needed to consider what guides me in teaching & learning and how that can impact any person coming to Special Collections. For this I refer to Bass (1999):
1/ Which learning outcome is the one thing that students would retain from this [module] after leaving?
2/ Could I honestly say that I spent the most amount of time in the [module] teaching to the goal I valued most?
Part of my teaching philosophy is that I am committed to sharing my current knowledge and desire to continue to learn. To this end I present at conferences and seminars.
