First Things First in Becoming a Teacher of Adults
Galbraith, Michael W.; Jones, Melanie S.
Journal of Adult Education, v37 n1 p1-12 2008
The exploration of self-awareness as an essential component for understanding ourselves as a teacher of adults is rather absent in the literature. This article focuses on the elements that are foundational within the self-awareness journey--beliefs, values, and attitudes. Understanding these elements establishes the basis for practice implications, such as formulating a personal philosophy or vision for teaching, establishing authenticity and credibility, and determining a teaching perspective.
