Search committees often ask faculty candidates to provide a statement of their teaching philosophy. At first, this can be a little frightening. It provides an opportunity, however, to think through the beliefs in which you ground your teaching practices, and to be prepared for both the written and oral aspects of the academic job search.
Come and discover:
- What is a statement of teaching Philosophy?
- Why is it so important?
- How can you set about writing one?
This will be a practical workshop! You will leave with sample statements of teaching philosophies, useful exercises to help you write your own, and confidence to discuss your teaching philosophy with perspective employers.
