Writing a Teaching Philosophy Statement
Tuesday, August 30, 2016, 2 pm, Holden Auditorium

If you are applying for a faculty position, it is increasingly likely that you will be asked to submit a teaching philosophy statement (TPS) during the application process. This workshop will help you write and revise a TPS, a process that will allow you to demonstrate your commitment to teaching as you describe the goals and methods that shape your teaching. Participants will learn about why academic-search committees request teaching materials such as the TPS, and how search committees use these materials to assess candidates’ qualifications for teaching.

Presenter: Denise Leonard, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center

Participation in this workshop satisfies the Teaching Philosophy Statement workshop requirement for the WU-CIRTL and Preparation in Pedagogy programs.
