Teaching philosophy

I identify with, and have significantly contributed to, the mission of higher education. I brought into the University sector my experiences and qualifications as a management developer and have expanded this basis through academic study of learning and knowledge generation, as evidenced by the focus of my PhD ( Manager Development) and Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Education. My reflections on my practice have interwoven with academic conceptualisation. I would characterise my teaching and learning philosophy through these five core underpinning beliefs:

My constructivist beliefs mediate my learning designs towards a focus on the diversity of student cultures and experiences, and the impossibility of their hearing, accepting and replicating particular knowledge. My assumption is that they have different needs and will construct different knowledges compatible with their unique contexts.  The benefit of this approach is that each student crafts their own understanding, relevant to them, and ready to apply in their own workplace reality.

Student-centred learning requires me to privilege learner needs and voice over content, and to focus on multiple modes of presentation rather than transmissive modes of knowledge delivery. The heart of the interaction is about student discovery, giving them an early voice in the teaching space, and valuing the knowledge they generate through independent thinking and collaborative group modelling. The benefit to students is that they leave the units better able to assert their knowledge empowering them to effect organisational change.

A heuristic approach encourages me to set clear, incisive questions that guide discovery, questions that have relevance to our wider social existence, as well as within the discipline area. I use initial metaphors and artefacts to drive such questions. For students, the benefit is that their explorations connect their study activity with their everyday life. Students see themselves at the centre of the learning experience, recognise that there is no single answer or sole truth, but a complex web of contested beliefs. Building an analytical perspective prepares them for the complexity of managing.

As a former workplace manager I retain the desire to take the learning off the page and into the workplace where it will be practised, valued and meet the intractable dilemmas of our organisations. The benefit for students is that they gain practice at ‘working’ their knowledge in contexts relevant to them, and gain skill in applying their learning to workplace problems.

Finally, authenticity is critical to drive the assignments that lie at the heart of student motivation. Authenticity is fostered through encouraging student choice and the ‘constructive alignment’ of unit content, assessment and feedback. When encouraged to choose the context and direction of assignments students generate authenticity as they integrate their work and learning environments.  The benefit is that the students’ learning becomes a legitimate workplace activity and is embedded in their work role.

A framework for facilitating seminar interactivity

I position students to be active participants in potentially transforming learning experiences. When I arrived in WA in 1993, there was a prevalence of teaching by overhead slides, with rows of desks, and transmissive modes of learning and examination. I reflected on my previous training experiences to conceptualise a ‘framework’ for Higher Education seminar design that I have since continually developed, formalised, and shared with others through School, Faculty and University teaching seminars to displace the dominance of PowerPoint. Every technology and delivery mode has its specific uses but the increasing diversity of student cultures, ages, workplace goals and learning styles indicates that there should be a commitment to a diversity of technologies, for a variety of student learning interactions, so that we will stimulate different learners in different ways.

I build each seminar around a Core Question. I use my ‘framework’ to build from the Core Question and construct a range of diverse learning activities to stimulate and motivate student learning exploration. The ‘framework’ provides four pillars for each of the activities used within the seminar. I generate a series of different activities based on multiple variations of the four pillars:                                                             

  1. What input needs to be made by me to introduce the concept?
  2. What task should the students be asked to perform?
  3. What groups do they need to be placed in?
  4.  What method of display or output will be used for the activity?

I have built up a reservoir of activity options for each of the four pillars that enable me to present concepts to the students in a continual variation of learning activities within each seminar. My inputs change in terms of the media I use, stories, pictures, or artefacts; the work groups change from individual to pairs, to trios to fours; the tasks change from brainstorming, debate or ranking. The method of display changes from presentational selling, to design posters or key issue review.

The students benefit from the ‘framework’ by experiencing rich and stimulating interactive experiences that change for each activity. I introduce them to concepts in ways that encourage them to open the doors further as they continue their learning exploration. This method also means that they construct their own knowledge rather than digesting knowledge that is presented. The students carry out different learning tasks and find their unique answers. After all, they will go many different ways to many different places. Context defines appropriate strategies, student must be capable of not just knowing but being able to apply their knowledge to vastly different and changing contexts, and finally having the voice and confidence to be an advocate for change.
