Getting Started on Your Teaching Statement
Session Format: In-Person
Intended Audience: Graduate Students, Postdocs
Facilitator(s): Deborah Meizlish
Session Abstract: A teaching statement (or teaching philosophy) describes your core beliefs about teaching and learning and provides concrete examples of how they are implemented in the classroom. In this in-person workshop, you will learn about research on the use of teaching statements in the academic hiring process; consider some of the key characteristics of effective teaching statements; examine sample statements; and work through activities designed to help you begin the process of writing a teaching statement. This workshop is designed to introduce the teaching statement genre and effective strategies to formulate and write one. Participants are not expected to bring a completed teaching statement.
