A Postdoc & Graduate Student Workshop w/ Dr. Linda Hodges
More and more academic job announcements are requesting that applicants submit a teaching statement/ philosophy either on its own or as part of a teaching portfolio. And more and more colleges and universities request these documents as part of the tenure and promotion process. As a graduate student or post-doctoral fellow, you may be unfamiliar with this kind of academic documentation and writing. Although often used to evaluate your teaching by an outside group, teaching portfolios are also a valuable way for you to reflect on and develop your teaching. In this session we’ll look at the elements involved in a teaching portfolio, and we’ll spend some time discussing and analyzing statements of teaching philosophy that work best in communicating your teaching experience and approach to a search committee.
