Writing Effective and Reflective Teaching Philosophies (Oct. 21, 9:30 a.m.)

Teaching philosophies. We may think of them when required to write one for a job application or promotion file—or maybe you haven’t touched your teaching philosophy since graduate school. But there are many reasons educators can benefit from writing—and revisiting—a teaching philosophy. Teaching philosophies help us to reflect upon and articulate our ideas about what makes for effective teaching. And doing so helps to ensure that what we do in our classes is consistent with those beliefs and promotes student learning. In this workshop, we will share some basics of developing a teaching philosophy, including the components that can effectively illustrate your values as a teacher and the details of how you’ve enacted and evolved your craft. Join us for our open exchange of ideas this Friday, October 21, from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m., in the CATL Conference Room (CL 405) or via Zoom.
