Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning
Theme: Creating Success When Teaching & Learning Remotely
Come join a dynamic learning community by participating in this specially designed online seminar series for all faculty (across all disciplines and rank). We’ll share strategies and best practices from research-based pedagogy. Great conversations and handouts provided.
Session 6: Writing an Effective Teaching Philosophy Statement for Annual Reviews and Promotion & Tenure
Teaching philosophy statements are requested for a variety of reasons: job applications, teaching awards, grant proposals, and formal evaluations. On our campus, faculty submit a teaching statement as part of the promotion and tenure packet and for the annual review in many of the departments. A teaching statement that accurately describes and documents your teaching, in addition, to your philosophy, can promote reflection and new approaches for teaching, and… document your efforts. We will share the characteristics of unique effective teaching statements and the most common areas where typical teaching statements can be improved. You will leave the workshop with a beginning of a more effective document.
This interactive workshop will be helpful to those who want to begin or revise their teaching philosophy statements for their annual reviews and P&T portfolios. This session is targeted for faculty, but open to all. Resources and handouts provided.
*This workshop counts towards completion of any of CITL's Teaching Certificates. To learn more about our Teaching Certificate program please visit https://go.illinois.edu/teaching_certificates.
