I believe that the ideal approach for formulating the philosophy of teaching for a specific course should be relied on the learning outcomes of that course. That is chosen teaching methods should be suitable to achieve the course learning outcomes. Teaching method which might be convenient for achieving a specific learning outcome might not be suitable for another. So my philosophy is that teaching is aiming for learning the students. But how can I know that the students are learning? This can be tested in the context of action research approach through using of informative assessments techniques i.e. classroom assessment techniques and the summative assessment techniques i.e. quizzes, assignments, projects and exams. The advantage of adopting action research approach is ensuring the effective interaction between the instructor and students to achieve the learning outcomes of the concerned course.
