Teaching philosophy statements serve several purposes. They offer an opportunity for self-reflection, offer an introduction to one's teaching portfolio, provide a means of communication with one's students, and are increasingly a requirement in job applications. In this workshop session, led by Dr. Marie Kendall Brown, you will be given the opportunity to reflect upon your philosophical approach to teaching and learning by comparing and responding to sample teaching philosophy statements. You will also learn strategies for writing a successful statement and be given time to begin work on your own statement.
