The american philosopher John Dewey implemented the theory of "learning by doing". Provide an experience in which you had to "learn by doing".
While working as an assistant reference librarian, I was asked to help co-teach a instructional session to a group of Speech Pathology Majors. Although it was my first time teaching this group of majors I was able to further my learning experience by implementing what I was taught in my own courses of reference instruction. If I hadn't had that experience of "learning by doing", I wouldn't have gained my first reference instruction experience and go on to gaining the confidence to help and teach others of more subjects.
