Two Part Workshop: meets Monday, February 8 and Monday, February 22, 10:00am – 11:30am
Draft a peer-reviewed statement that reflects your teaching beliefs and experiences in this interactive, two-part online workshop. Participants will work to draft and edit a teaching statement, which is often required for US academic job applications. We will discuss elements of teaching statements, evidence of effective teaching tailored for different academic jobs, and strategies to get started or polish existing teaching statements. Participants from all disciplines will become better equipped and prepared to communicate their teaching practice through this workshop’s collaborative, peer-review process.
This is a two-part workshop, and participants will be expected to draft (or to revise an existing draft) a teaching philosophy statement in between sessions.
This workshop is limited to 40 participants. Registration will close on Friday, February 5 at 12:00pm CT (or early if the workshop reaches capacity). Once you register, you will have access to the online platform where this online event will take place.
