My Personal Inquiry:  My Educational Practice is based on who I am

This blog is created in partial fulfillment of the requirements for ADED 4F35:  Academic Research and Critical Reflection in Adult Education, Bachelor of Education/Certificate in Adult Education Program, Centre for Adult Education and Community Outreach, Faculty of Education, Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario.

The results of my personal inquiry are documented in two parts:  a narrative document and this online journal/blog.  These two artifacts document my journey, the learning mosaic, I have experienced to date as an adult learner and educator, and the connections to literature and adult education theories. 

It serves as a repository of my experiences in what Hall calls the “lifelong enterprise that requires that one continuously and actively, with an open mind, turn over stones, even when the possibilities appear to be exhausted.  He opines, and I agree, that “searching for beliefs to live by involves casualties of the mind in which long-held beliefs are put to task and may end up in the pile of obsolescence.” (Hall, 2010).

Critical reflection on my experience thus far has now turned my attention forward to the iterative process of self-directed inquiry, transformation, or revision, as it relates to my personal and professional growth.
