The toughest question from my recent job interview was to explain my philosophy of education. This should not have been a difficult question, but I am more comfortable with practical and theory-based questions. I know that I said something about lifelong learning. I asked my Facebook friends for their thoughts and was reminded of including the importance of critical thinking.
Here is my (developing) philosophy of education: "Successful education promotes lifelong learning and critical thinking. In higher education, academic advising can help promote these outcomes." This is not something that I have articulated often, so I need to keep thinking about this.
On the practical side, I love this blog post at A Beautiful Mess. Two successful business women and bloggers share their thoughts and advice on education.
What is your philosophy of education or advice to share?
Sprinkle in critical thinking, your belief in the value of assessment, and Bloom's Taxonomy and you should be good. :) Ok, that's somewhat tongue in cheek but it will most likely help in an interview.
