A teaching philosophy is a self-reflective expression of a faculty member’s beliefs and experiences that shape his or her teaching and learning 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 is the first of a two-part series and will engage participants in conceptualizing and drafting a teaching philosophy. Faculty can attend one or both of these workshops and need not have a previously written philosophy to take part. This workshop will last two and a half hours.
