Writing a Teaching Philosophy Statement and Creating a Teaching Portfolio
Monday, September 15th, 2014
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
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, what kinds of materials you should include in a teaching portfolio, and how search committees use these materials to assess candidates’ qualifications for teaching.
Registration for this event has closed.
Presenters: Michelle Repice, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center and Bryn Lutes, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center
