A Philosophy of Teaching Statement has become a common requirement in academic life, both for graduate students applying to faculty positions and faculty applying for tenure and promotion. But what is a philosophy of teaching and what does it look like? In this workshop, you begin the process of writing a statement that reflects your unique approach to classroom learning, by discussing the parts of a philosophy, examining sample statements and beginning exercises that help you reflect on how you approach your role as instructor. This workshop is generally offered during the summer quarter. For help with the teaching statement during the academic year, register for the Seminar and Workshop on Teaching Portfolios.
