Writing a Statement of Teaching Philosophy for an Academic Job

October 11, 2019 @ 12:45 PM - 2:15 PM

Whether you apply for positions at research-oriented universities or teaching-focused community colleges, or anywhere in between, you will be asked to communicate your approach to teaching. In this workshop, you will reflect on the key beliefs and teaching behaviors that you should articulate and emphasize in your statement. We will also identify the qualities of an effective statement, evaluate samples, and consider strategies for organizing a well-crafted teaching philosophy. You will leave with a beginning draft of your statement and a plan for further development.

*Note: Because of space reconfiguration, we are currently unable to host workshops in the ITLAL office. Please take careful note of the location of the workshops you plan to attend. Our staff offices are still in Library 69 and we will continue to hold individual consultations in this space. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
