How often do medical teachers talk about their teaching philosophy?
A teaching philosophy statement is a fundamental expression of an educator’s beliefs, assumptions and values with regards to teaching and learning. Medical teachers are expected to write teaching philosophy statements for job applications, promotions and tenure, despite limited knowledge in educational theories or proper guidance on writing approach. However, the development of a teaching philosophy is an iterative process that involves scholarly practice and reflective dialogues. This metacognitive process has the potential of transforming one’s perspective. This article provides an insight into how the deliberate reflective process of talking about teaching philosophies shaped the author’s identity as a medical educator.
