Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning

Theme: Improving and Assessing Teaching Excellence 

Teaching is an important goal and responsibility on our campus. Most recently, we have been actively identifying ways to more effectively assess and improve teaching. Think/reflect upon your teaching practice. What are some things you can implement in your teaching that will immediate impact student learning?

You are invited to join a dynamic learning community by participating in this specially designed workshop series for all faculty (across all disciplines and rank). We’ll share strategies and best practices from research-based pedagogy. Come and meet new colleagues. Great conversations and handouts guaranteed.

Session 1: A Reflective Teaching Philosophy Statement for Promotion and Tenure


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, in addition for teaching awards and grant proposals. 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. We will also share with you the most recent proposed changes to Comm #9. 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.
