Throughout this module we’ve explored various types of metaphors for teaching and learning.Prior learning was baggage.

Motivation was drive.

Mastery and organization of knowledge are like component building blocks toward a cohesive structure.

Self-direction and metacognition are like our own internal GPS signaling our own personal wayfinding.

Now it’s time to put it together considering your own teaching philosophy. What is your metaphor for teaching and learning?

Here are some exercises for exploring your teaching philosophy and some metaphors for teaching  from the University of Waterloo.

Find a photo or draw a picture. Narrate why this image represents you and your approach as a teacher.

See some examples done by previous Extend participants.
