PersonalPhilosophy of Learning
Accordingto Hattie& Yates (2013), installingskills in the minds of young persons has never been an easy task.Frustrations, challenges, and responsibilities become the majorobstacles that a person has to overcome in the process of learning.However, learning is fulfilling, exciting and enjoyable. In myopinion, all the children have the capacity to learn if theirteachers offer them proper motivation and direction.
Lackof a safe learning environment reduces or even totally inhibitslearning. As a tutor, I need a good knowledge of theories concerningmotivation, learning, behavior and development perspectives so that Ican associate with my students efficiently and assist them to realizetheir maximum potentials. As a teacher, I should motivate all mystudents and dedicate all my time and energy towards their education.
Iaim at creating a classroom that has a safe learning environment forall the students. The purpose of a secure learning environment is tolower the student’s defense instincts by ensuring that theiremotional, physical and social needs are met (Brophy,2013).I need to create a self-unbiased image so that the students,teachers, administrators and society can freely consult me. I alsoneed to organize my classroom properly. Being innovative would helpme to establish a class setting that facilitates the learning processof the students.
Ibelieve in teaching some meaningful, realistic and engaging contentto the students. My goal is to prepare continually for an inclusiveclassroom where I will consider the students’ needs and make thelessons according to those requirements. If the students do notrelate the importance of the topic, then their interest in learningwill be minimal (Brophy,2013).To complete the learning environment, I need to heighten my energylevels and create a positive attitude. I intend to teach my studentsthrough straightforward instruction and allow them room to developand increase their capacities on their own. It is beneficial forstudents to work for answers than providing results, as workingexpounds on the students’ skills and enhances their learning ofvarious methods of obtaining information (Franco,Butler & Halpern, 2015).
Thereason why I studied a Graduate Degree is that my dream careerdemands an advanced level of knowledge. The teaching career obligesthe tutors to be highly skilled and experienced(Hattie & Yates, 2013).By attaining a Graduate Degree, I am sure that I will acquire thenecessary field attachment that will contribute to learning variousskills and gaining field experience. After graduating, I will be acompetent teacher because of the skills that I have acquired from thedegree course. My interest in teaching will help me to explore thediscipline in depth and gain better and professional understanding. Ican apply the knowledge in transforming the education sector. Anotherreason to pursue an advanced degree in teaching is that it may opendoors to additional career opportunities. I can become an advisor ora consultant to the various education departments and sectors.
Accordingto Brophy(2013), forlearning to be successful, many issues have to be considered. Theteacher should have the necessary skills to facilitate learningthrough motivating the students and creating a proper learningenvironment. An instructor has to enhance the students’ interest inlearning. The intrinsic motivation of the tutor is crucial to thesuccess of the education process. The absence of these factors wouldonly lead to difficulties in the learning process.
