Transcript of Day 1: College Success -Foundation Studies 100

Other Expectations
Teaching Philosophy:
Instructor a facilitator or a guide (not see me as the know all)
Teach adults with the hope to create a CR as open & democratic as possible
The Learner should be the emphasis of the CR
Create power-free zones, group work, open & free discussions, group creation of knowledge (not about me checking your knowledge)
Learning is supposed to empower you (question what you see, find your voice, self-confidence to better your lives)
Responsibility of learning is not uni-dimensional (belongs to both the teacher & the learner)
As adults, you are perfectly capable of learning on your own (do now own knowledge, share expertise; goal- make you self-directed, life-long learners)
