Developing a Teaching Philosophy Statement

A teaching philosophy statement is a concise, compelling illustration of you as an instructor, a useful exercise in reflexive examination of your teaching, and a necessary component of many academic job applications. This workshop will give those just beginning to write a teaching philosophy statement a place to start and tools with which to move forward. Students who have developed teaching philosophy statements in the past will take a fresh look at those and implement effective revisions. 

Objectives: By the end of this workshop, students will be able to:

  • Create a compelling, concise statement which reflects their unique values as an instructor
  • Articulate teaching ojbectives 
  • Describe personal teaching methods
  • Discuss ways of gauging teaching effectiveness
  • Reflect on the ways in which teaching is impactful for the instructor, and in which the instructor hopes to make an impact

Registration for workshops is mandatory which ensures distribution of pre-workshop materials and accurate attendance records.
