Event Advertisement: Teaching Philosophy Workshop

Since so many Graduate Teaching Community members expressed interest in writing Teaching Philosophies, I thought you'd all like to know about this event that is happening. Hope to see some of you there!

Tuesday, February 2
5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. | Teaching Resources Center, 25 Wellman

Reflecting on Your Teaching and Crafting a Philosophy – Part 1
Teaching statements are often included as part of academic job applications. At the end of this two-part workshop you will have a fully drafted and peer-reviewed statement of teaching philosophy. In preparation for writing your essay, the first part of this workshop will help you reflect on what is important to you as a teacher and learn the fundamental components of a statement of teaching philosophy. You will leave part one with ideas and tools to draft your own teaching statement. Having reflected on what is important to you as a teacher, and learned the fundamental components of a statement of teaching philosophy, you will participate in a one-hour guided peer-review. Please bring a complete draft and four copies of your teaching statement to Part 2 of the workshop (February 16 5-6PM). No registration necessary. For more information about this workshop please contact Sharada Balachandran Orihuela at sbalacha@ucdavis.edu . Sponsored by the Teaching Resources Center.
