Writing Your Teaching Philosophy Statement: Who are you as an Educator?

Writing Your Teaching Philosophy Statement: Who are you as an Educator? Online

Many academic positions require a teaching philosophy statement as one of the application materials to learn about a candidate’s teaching beliefs, values, and use of evidence-based teaching and assessment practices for effective instruction. In this workshop you will learn how to document your teaching and/or teaching professional development experiences to start crafting your teaching philosophy statement with the help of a rubric. At the end of this session, you will have a working draft of your teaching statement, which will encourage you to continue your efforts toward intentional and effective teaching and instruction. Register here.

* This is part one of our 3-part workshop series. The next part is on Diversity Statement on Monday, March 11 from 1:00 – 2:30 pm.
