  3. 3. A Credo • Definition: ‘A statement of the beliefs or aims which guides someone’s actions’. • Do we all have one? • What’s the guiding principle of your teaching? 1. “To respond effectively as I can to the learning need of the student”. 2. “To align as fully as possible with academic activities of the university”. 3. “To support academics, researchers and students by providing training / instruction in the effective use of library resources”.

  5. 5. Reflection • Teaching is what I do, but is it what I am? • Am I a teacher in the same way my academic colleagues are or in the same way I used to be? • Does a strong philosophy underpin what I do? • Do I take time to reflect on my practice? • Does my Credo need updating? • Does yours?!
