Writing a Teaching Philosophy: Presentation and Workshop
As post-secondary teachers, it is becoming increasingly more important to articulate an individual teaching philosophy and that it be available for review when applying for a college or university faculty positions. This session will give you the opportunity to learn about best practices in creating a teaching philosophy as well as solicit advice from TILT Professional Development staff as you develop your own. Specifically, this session will include:
- An overview of the research on what potential employers are looking for in a Teaching Philosophy
- An overview of the basic structure and central information that should be included
- Ideas for strategies from CSU faculty and what they look for in a Teaching Philosophy
This two-hour session contains two parts: a presentation and workshop. From 11:30-12:30 , we will offer a presentation on writing a teaching philosophy. From 12:30-1:30 , we will facilitate a peer workshop wherein you can write, revise, and solicit feedback on your teaching philosophy. You may attend one or both parts of this session.
Lunch will be provided. This two-hour session counts as two workshops towards the GTA teaching certificate.
This workshop is open to all faculty, staff, and graduate students.
