Writing a Teaching Philosophy Statement

Facilitator:

Dr. Meg Gregory, Associate Director for Faculty Programs and Services

  • 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
  • Seigle Hall (Room 301)

Event Description

If you are applying for an academic position, it is likely that you will be asked to submit a teaching philosophy statement during the application process. Participants in this Job Market series workshop will learn about why academic search committees request teaching materials such as the teaching philosophy statement and how search committees use these materials to assess candidates’ qualifications for teaching. Further, this workshop will help participants navigate the genre of the teaching statement, offering them the opportunity to begin to think about how they will frame their commitment to teaching, and describe their teaching methods and goals to others in their academic fields.

Workshops in this series are only open to postdocs and graduate students in their third year and beyond. If you need the workshop sooner than that, for example, because you are in a terminal 3-year program, please email Dr. Gregory to register.

This workshop will be in person on the Danforth Campus. If you need medical accommodations to participate virtually, please let Dr. Gregory know.

For questions about this workshop, please contact Dr. Meg Gregory.
