الموقع الخاص للدكتور محمود الموسويTeaching is a new experience for me. When I started teaching, I had not considered what my teaching philosophy would be or how I would instruct students. My philosophy on teaching comes from my experiences in the classroom and my academic experiences. Throughout my academic career, I have studied the ways in which identities are performed and practiced. I have been particularly interested in the ways that people make meaning for themselves through the embodiment of experience. It is from these studies, which influences my beliefs that the best way for students to learn is through the body. As a teacher, I want my students to not only understand the concepts that I am teaching; I want them to apply the concepts and skills in their own life. I think for these concepts to be integrated into a student’s identity, they must learn to embody these skills. This requires the students to act out and practice these concepts and skills. In my teaching, I do not focus on lecturing to cover the material. I الإخراج التليفزيونيuse discussions to get my students thinking about these concepts and how they apply to their lives, and I am particularly interested in them expressing the conceptual material in terms of their own experiences. Then I use role-playing and other forms of performance as a way for students to practice the concepts. Through practicing these concepts in simulated situations, I hope that the students learn how to apply the concepts in everyday settings. I think it is important that students understand and know the meaning of the concepts, but more importantly I believe that students need to understand how to embody and perform the concepts in everyday situations.

 

The students are not the only ones learning in my classroom, I have learned a lot from the experience of teaching. As I said, I am new to teaching. I think that my teaching philosophy will grow and change, as I gain more experience as a teacher. It is my experiences as a teacher that makes me the teacher I am, which changes every time I step into the classroom. This is why I think my teaching philosophy will continue to change and to grow.
