Developing a teaching statement for the academic job market

September 9, 2021 | 12:00pm to 1:30pm

For Graduate Students and Postdocs 

Teaching statements or teaching philosophy statements are common elements of academic job market applications. In this workshop, you will learn evidence-based strategies about articulating your teaching values, student-centered learning goals and instructional choices. In this interactive workshop, you will learn with others as you are guided through a scaffolded approach to writing your statement and how to purposefully choose vibrant examples that communicate your approach to teaching.

After this workshop participants will be able to: 

  • Learn about and apply the five facets of effective teaching statements in your own context.
  • Articulate the relationship between student-centered goals, instructional methods, and assessment in your own teaching.
  • Reflect on your own teaching identity.
