Assignment 2: A Critical Reflective Paper - Philosophy of Adult
Teaching and Facilitation Practices (25%)
Topic facilittion with teacher-center instruction lead.
The purpose of this assignment is to examine the connections/differences between your
philosophy (beliefs) of teaching and your philosophy of facilitation. You will surface your
personal perceptions, values, beliefs and attitudes that underlie the actions you take in a
teaching or facilitation setting. You will also identify how your style:
a. is congruent with various theories and
b. might align with certain facilitation practices.
Note: The impetus for this assignment is for students to incorporate session learning
relative to teaching and facilitation roles, responsibilities and contexts into their own
practices. Learners are to demonstrate their own beliefs with respect to the difference
between facilitation strategies and traditional teaching approaches.
Directions to Learners

? In summary, revisit your thesis/purpose statement and recap your main points
relative to your discussion.
