Composing a Teaching Philosophy: Identifying Beliefs, Values, and Purpose
Thursday, September 9th, 2021 | 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Event Type: Webinar
Facilitator: Linda Stewart
This workshop focuses on developing a teaching philosophy statement or revising a current one. Using several writing prompts, we will generate ideas about the broad principles currently guiding our beliefs about teaching and learning. We will identify critical incidents in our teaching and learning and share those stories to get feedback from our colleagues. We will also identify theorists that align with our values and purpose. We will also articulate concrete ways our philosophy is enacted in our current or future classrooms. A memorable teaching philosophy statement is crucial for job searches, annual reviews, award applications, and more (Lang, J. M. 2010). Participants will be asked to complete a teaching inventory prior to the workshop.
