Dwayne Harapnuik’s Learning Philosophy

In this assignment, you will outline and discuss your beliefs and practices about learning.
Dwayne Harapnuik’s Learning Philosophy (linked below) focuses first on the learning and argues that he is a learning facilitator rather than a teacher. Regardless of your position on learning and teaching, creating a learning philosophy will force you to think through and define your beliefs about learning and your role in creating significant learning environments.

Instructions
Consider your collaborative discussions and use the resources listed above as starting points in crafting your learning philosophy which will require you to consider a different set of questions. Your learning philosophy should include but not be limited to:
Beliefs about learning in general.
Beliefs about the relationship between teaching and learning.
Beliefs about myself as a learner.
Beliefs on the difference between a learning philosophy vs a teaching philosophy.
Are you a Constructivist, Behaviorist, Cognitivist, or something else and why do you identify with this learning theory? Who is the main theorist of your identified theory?
Connection to one or more learning theories to support your position.
A well-developed annotated bibliography to highlight the resources that you reviewed and which influenced your philosophy.
You will also need to address how your learning philosophy impact or influence your innovation plan and your role as a change agent?
Please note: This is your learning philosophy so please don’t restrict yourself to one or two pages that are often the guideline for a teaching philosophy. Your learning philosophy needs to be as long as it needs to be. Also consider your learning philosophy a living document because you will return to it often and make revisions; so your best format is a text-based post or page on your ePortfolio.
