Teaching philosophy
My philosophy of teaching is to generate an environment that permits for supervised exploration. I think that the most useful learning occurs in circumstances that are both expressive and realistic. The main goal of my teaching has been to put learners in these types of situations: in the pedodontic department dental students learning how to deal with children and how to guide them along the time of the visit.I believe that the best way to gain these aims is through small group, chiefly in a clinically related setting. The relevant setting is a key: it permits the student to relate their knowledge into a valuable framework and offers emotional significance to the learning process. Learning in a clinical situation requires a balance between safety and reality. The setting must be real enough so that the knowledge and skills that the student is learning are relevant to similar clinical conditions in the future. However the situation needs to be safe enough so that the student sense empowered to explore the level of their developing skills.However, to really change from a teacher-centered learning setting (such as the classroom) to a learner-centered setting (such as the clinic), students must recognize their learning needs, and assess their progress by themselves. The use of collections, in the dental school, hospital and faculty background is one way that I have believe to enhance self-assessment and assist to impart life-long learning rule.
