A teaching statement makes the case that the writer has achieved excellence in his or her teaching. The statement explains how the writer’s teaching philosophy has been put into practice, providing specific evidence to demonstrate successful student learning. This workshop will help participants identify disciplinarily-appropriate benchmarks for excellence in teaching as well as evidence that they have met these benchmarks in their own teaching. This workshop will last one and a half hours and will include time for feedback on participants’ existing teaching statements. This workshop is the second in a two-part series; faculty need not have attended the first workshop to attend this one. This workshop will last one and a half hours; the presenters will be available afterward to help provide feedback to interested participants who have existing statements.
