Crafting a teaching philosophy statement

Thursday, September 12, 2019
11:00am – 12:15pm

Storrs Campus
ROWE 319

At this session, participants will discuss the concept of the teaching philosophy—its attributes, value, and uses—as they begin to envision writing a teaching philosophy of their own. We will do some writing and think-pair-share discussions. To prepare for this session, participants are encouraged to reflect on their own teaching by trying one of these brainstorming exercises (optional): • Draft a letter to someone outside academia on the joys and challenges of teaching • List the qualities of an effective teacher • Free write about a memorable experience in the classroom or in the field • Outline a dream course
