A teaching philosophy statement articulates the assumptions and expectations that shape a faculty member's teaching strategies. Often used as part of a job application, a promotion and tenure dossier, a teaching award nomination, and course syllabi, a teaching philosophy captures and documents a teacher’s values and successes in teaching. This workshop will involve active writing and revising to engage participants in conceptualizing, drafting, and revising a statement of teaching philosophy. Each participant should bring a laptop, pen and paper, or some other device with which to work. Participants with existing statements of teaching philosophy can develop them further during this session. The workshop will last two and a half hours.
