Educational Philosophy

My educational philosophy is to facilitate learners in becoming more apt to form valid, reliable, and unbiased arguments, provide innovative solutions to real-life problems, make decisions that resolve cognitive conflict by developing understandings through a difference of opinion or perspective, and create innovative ways of communicating with others. My role is to move learners from being dependent, to independent, to interdependent individuals who are not afraid to take chances, share their successes and failures with others, and are concerned for the well-being of not only themselves but for others as well. My goal is to help others become more daring, sharing, and caring individuals.


The assumptions that I have about education certainly don't apply to everyone, but feel that it does apply to enough educators, trainers, and coaches (including myself) that it warrants reflection that underpins my own educational philosophy.
