Writing a Statement of Teaching Philosophy for an Academic Job Search
Wednesday, October 17, 2:30 - 4:00pm
ITLAL Underground (Library 69)
Regardless of the type of institution you decide to focus your academic job search on, you are likely to be asked to submit a statement of teaching philosophy at some point during the hiring process. In this active and interactive workshop, we will begin reflecting on the key beliefs and teaching behaviors from your own courses that you should articulate and emphasize in your own statement. We will also identify the qualities of an effective statement, evaluate samples, and consider possibilities for effectively organizing a teaching philosophy. You will leave with a draft that will be the beginning of your own statement.
