Teaching Statement Writing Workshop

Friday | July 8, 2022 | 12 p.m.  - 1:30 p.m.

This workshop will help you articulate your teaching philosophy in a concise, effective essay. The CTE will discuss the statement’s purpose, different aspects of your teaching experiences that can be included, and best practices and strategies for composing the statement. This is a working webinar, requiring that you do some reflective writing in advance of the workshop, so that the workshop can include individual writing, group discussion, and feedback. Participants will leave with an outline of their statement, written components, and guidance to continue crafting it.
