My philosophy has been developed through 30 years of working and teaching nursing students,
medical students, and staff at the best magnet Training university hospitals. Conceptually, my teaching
philosophy is based of Transformative Learning as defined in Learning as Transformation (Mezirow,
1999), Learning is most effective and transferable when it takes place at
the intersection of content, professional communication and positive feedback.Therefore, my teaching focuses on
effectively conveying accurate information, using innovative communications, critical thinking, and
analyzing before memorizing.
I encourage reflective practice as part of the academic process in my class. The pedagogy behind the
creation of critical incidents is that learning occurs when an individual encounters an alternative
perspective, and habits of the mind are called into question. To provide opportunities for
critical thinking, I challenge my classes in several ways. I love to teach and get satisfaction from my students.
