Activating a Teaching-Learning Philosophy: A Practical Guide for Educators
Grise-Owens, Erlene; Miller, J. Jay; Owen, Larry W.
Council on Social Work Education
This how-to manual provides a structured framework for developing a comprehensive teaching-learning philosophy from articulation through implementation to evaluation--and then reactivation. Using professional literature and teaching-learning experiences, the authors provide pragmatic steps for using a grounded philosophy to inform, engage, and assess teaching-learning. They advocate an integrated teaching-learning philosophy to promote ongoing commitment, engaged competency, and meaningful purpose in practice for educators. The book can be used as an individual tool for professional development or in programs that prepare engaged educators, including doctoral curricula. It can also be used to inform unit and even university-level activation of a joint, shared, philosophical approach to support accountability efforts, such as institutional effectiveness and accreditation. The authors intend this book to serve as the resource they wish they had possessed when they first ventured into the teaching role--and, indeed, throughout a career trajectory.
