Event description

Description

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 objectives
• 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
