A teaching philosophy statement is a self-reflective expression of a faculty member’s beliefs that shape his or her teaching and learning strategies. It is often used as part of a job application, a promotion and tenure dossier, a teaching award nomination, and course syllabi. This workshop will engage participants in conceptualizing, drafting, and revising a statement of teaching philosophy. This workshop will involve active participation; each participant should bring a copy of his or her current statement of teaching philosophy. The presenters will help participants who don’t have a statement get started on one. The workshop will last two and a half hours.
