Facilitator: Jason Schreiner, Teaching Engagement Program

A statement of teaching philosophy is a short narrative about your teaching that explains the principles and theories behind it. Teaching statements are often an essential element of job applications for academic positions and for promotion and tenure review. This workshop will review formats and best practices for writing a statement of teaching philosophy. You also will begin the writing process and leave with a draft outline of a teaching statement. Graduate students, newly hired faculty, and adjunct instructors who plan to apply for academic positions may particularly benefit from this workshop.
