Writing a Teaching Philosophy Statement

Facilitator:

Dr. Meg Gregory

  • 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
  • Via Zoom

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.

Registration for workshops in this series are only open to postdocs and graduate students who are in their third years or beyond. If you should have need to take this workshop earlier, please reach out to Dr. Meg Gregory, Associate Director of Faculty Programs, Educational Development, the Center for Teaching and Learning at meggregory@wustl.edu.

Registration for this workshop will open approximately 2 weeks prior to the date of the workshop.
