Career development Communication

In this workshop, you will learn about what’s expected in statements of teaching philosophies for academic job applications. We will read and discuss sample statements of teaching philosophy. We’ll talk about the purpose of the statement (“What should I communicate through this document?”), its formal conventions (“How should I organize it? What examples should I use?”), and how to craft a statement that genuinely captures your approach to teaching and learning.
