My philosophy is that education is key to providing safe and effective patient care. I believe in creating an environment of mutual respect between educator and learner, encouraging students to be active participants in their learning. In addition, I strive to ensure that learners have the opportunity to put theory into practice while remaining mindful of diversity and inclusion among students.
The framework chosen for this comparison is Kolb’s Experiential Learning Theory (ELT). This model proposes a four-stage cycle of experiencing, reflecting, processing, and applying knowledge gained through past experiences. This reflects my own belief that it’s important for learners to experience what they are being taught before reflecting on the information and evaluating its relevance or application. My intention is for students to be able to apply whatever has been learned in order to progress professionally as healthcare practitioners.
Ultimately, there are distinctions between my personal educational philosophy and ELT: ELT relies more heavily on feedback from direct experience whereas my approach emphasizes independent investigation; also with ELT there may not always be adequate reflection leading up to the application stage – something which I consider essential when teaching healthcare professionals how best to care for their patients.
