Teaching philosophy statements are requested for a variety of reasons: job applications, teaching awards, grant proposals, and formal evaluations. On our campus, faculty submit a teaching statement as part of the promotion and tenure packet and for the annual review in many of the departments. A teaching statement that accurately describes and documents your teaching, in addition, to your philosophy, can promote reflection and new approaches for teaching, in addition to documenting your efforts. We will share the characteristics of effective teaching statements and the most common areas where they can be improved.
This interactive workshop will be helpful to those who want to begin or revise their teaching philosophy statements for their annual reviews and P&T portfolios. This session is targeted for faculty, but open to all. Resources and handouts provided. Space is limited.
