I believe my role, as a university teacher, is to facilitate learners in their achievement of the goals they have set in their education as physiotherapists and other health professionals. This facilitation includes assisting learners to examine the profession and practice of Physiotherapy and to identify those areas in which they need to develop additional skills, new attitudes, values and beliefs, and new competencies. I believe learners are committed to this learning and will devote energy to learning that is relevant to them and their professional goals. My role is to assist learners to identify the relevance of the information and skills they are encountering in their educational programs. Learners have varied backgrounds, experiences, beliefs, and values. Many learners bring valuable experiences that enrich their professional competencies and practice, and add new meanings and interpretations to learning experiences. Learner diversity enhances the learning situation and stimulates broader understanding of the concepts under discussion. Learners develop confidence in themselves as learners and critical thinkers as they are successful in their learning endeavours. My role as teacher involves supporting students in the learning situation, including encouraging them to higher levels of achievement and understanding. Students need the support and encouragement of significant persons in the learning situation to stretch their thinking and take risks in their questioning and conclusions. A climate of learning that validates questioning behaviors and encourages critical thought around particular issues is more likely to result in a student who is willing to take those risks and participate more actively in the learning situation.
