Teaching Philosophy

To illustrate my personal and professional philosophy of teaching and learning, I selected the adage of “see one, do one, and teach one.” This saying is pervasive in nursing and medical education and depicts the apprenticeship model deeply rooted in health care; however, I feel it is more than that. I will use this saying to depict my personal, educational philosophy and values of seeking, sharing, applying, and enjoying knowledge. Thus, I translate the “see one” as the student seeking and the faculty sharing, the “do one” as the faculty doing one and the students relating and finally with the “teach one” being the student’s full application and learning to enjoy the knowledge they have gained.
