Educator voices: Laura on her educational philosophy

Listen to veteran educators talk about their respective philosophies and how a critically reflective practice impacts their teaching.

Now that you understand the importance of having an educational philosophy that connects belief to action (and vice versa), it’s time to listen to veteran educators talk about their respective philosophies and how a critically reflective practice impacts their teaching.

This step will initiate a series of short videos featuring professors representing different university departments, who use diverse teaching styles and have varied years of teaching experience.

We will start with Laura Bierema, one of the lead educators of this course.

She teaches at the University of Georgia in the Department of Lifelong Education, Administration, and Policy, and is also the Associate Dean for Academic Programs for the Dean’s office.

Take note of what resonates most with you, as later on, you will be creating your own educational philosophy. Feel free to point out any poignant statements by writing in the Comments section below.
