Peer Review Teaching Statement Workshop

September 21, 2021 | 3:30pm to 4:45pm

For graduate students and postdocs.

Receiving feedback on your teaching philosophy statement is a critical component of the revision process. In this session, Drake Institute staff will lead participants in a peer review workshop of their teaching statement drafts. Participants will consider how to incorporate the five facets of effective teaching statements, receive feedback on their teaching statement drafts and share suggestions to strengthen others’ statements. To participate in this workshop, you must submit a draft of your teaching statement to share no later than Monday, September 20th to Laura Struve (

Please register for this session only if you are able to attend for the entirety of the workshop, as participants will be paired one-on-one and guided through a few stages of the review process together and debrief as a group. If you are unable to attend the entire workshop, we encourage you set up a meeting with one of our consultants for an individual review of your draft.

After this workshop participants will be able to: 

  • Apply the five facets of effective teaching statements and provide feedback on a peer’s draft.
  • Reflect on their own teaching statements and strategize areas of improvement in their own drafts.

You may register here.
