Teaching Statement Workshop

May 13, 2022
9:00 am - 10:30 am
FLTC 204, 520 S Euclid Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110

If you are applying for an academic position, it is likely that you will be asked to submit a teaching philosophy statement during the application process. Participants in this workshop will learn about why academic search committees request teaching materials such as the teaching philosophy statement and how search committees use these materials to assess candidates’ qualifications for teaching. Further, this workshop will help participants navigate the genre of the teaching statement, offering them the opportunity to begin to think about how they will frame their commitment to teaching, and describe their teaching methods and goals to others in their academic fields.

This is an IN-PERSON workshop held on May 13th at 9am in Farrell Learning Teaching Center (FLTC), room 204. Interested participants will also be placed with a small writing group that will meet on May 20th and 27th at 9am to support and review one another’s statements. 
Please email Peter Myers at petersmyers@wustl.edu with any questions.
