My nursing theoretical perspective is the humanbecoming paradigm (Parse, 2014). Thus, my teaching philosophy arises from the humanbecoming teaching-learning model (Parse, 2014). From the humanbecoming perspective, “teaching-learning is a cocreated journey” and it is a “never-ending journey of giving-receiving in coming to know” (Parse, 2014, p. 145) Teaching-learning focuses on the teacher and the learner. Each learner has their own inherent wisdom and creativity. The teacher taps into this wisdom and the creative talent of each individual. Learners approach coming to know differently in varying situations, thus the teacher takes into account an individual’s differences, beliefs, and value priorities. Through the teaching-learning model, responsibility for learning lies within the learner, as well as the teacher; both of whom bear witness to the unfolding and emerging journey of coming to know.
Teaching-learning honors the wisdom of students. Teachers witness the changing and unfolding of students over time.
My teaching philosophy is a lived philosophy. It is something that I take with me always as I enter a classroom or teaching-learning situation. Over time, I have to come to know that I am both teacher and learner all-at-once. An exemplar of the teaching-learning model and its use in nursing education can be found in Nursing Science Quarterly. Please refer to Letcher and Yancey (2004) for this example.
