A statement of teaching philosophy is a brief narrative describing values, goals, and beliefs regarding both teaching and learning. It may be required as part of a job application, a promotion and tenure dossier, a teaching award nomination, or even for a course website. This workshop will address ways to document and reflect on one’s teaching as well as provide strategies for drafting and revising a teaching philosophy statement. This will be an active participation workshop; each participant should bring a copy of his or her current statement for discussion and review. If any participants don’t have a statement, the presenters will help them get started. The workshop will officially last 1.5 hours, but the presenters will be available for half an hour afterward to discuss further questions.
