What is this thing you’re supposed to include in your application? Some institutions call it a teaching philosophy, some a teaching statement, others a teaching philosophy statement, but more and more places require such a document from applicants for faculty positions.


I’ll be honest with you: your teaching philosophy statement is difficult to write, and different institutions want different things out of it. But there are some general rules you can follow to help your statement do its job of telling your future colleagues what kind of teacher you are and will be.


Come to this workshop to begin the process of identifying your teaching philosophy, deciding which parts of it belong in your statement, and avoiding common mistakes.


This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
