Writing an Effective Teaching Philosophy Statement
September 13, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm CDT
Draft a peer-reviewed statement that reflects your teaching beliefs and experiences in this interactive, two-part online workshop. Participants will work to draft and edit a teaching statement, which is often required for US academic job applications. We will discuss elements of teaching statements, evidence of effective teaching tailored for different academic jobs, and strategies to get started or polish existing teaching statements. Participants from all disciplines will become better equipped and prepared to communicate their teaching practice through this workshop’s collaborative, peer-review process.
This two-session online workshop meets on Tuesday, September 13 and 27 at 12:30-2PM AT / 11:30AM-1PM ET / 10:30AM-12PM CT / 9:30-11AM MT / 8:30-10AM PT.
Participants will be expected to draft (or revise an existing draft of) a teaching philosophy statement.
