Organizer: Charlene D'Avanzo

Although graduate students and recent PhDs applying for university or college jobs must submit a statement of “teaching philosophy”, many don’t know what to say or describe. In this workshop we will look at several job ads and compare/contrast what should be in a statement for different institutional types. We will also discuss different teaching approaches and the meanings of terms such as ‘inquiry’, ‘student-active’, and ‘evaluation’. We have served on a many search and hiring committees and have worked at different types of institutions – a large public research university, a medium sized public primarily undergraduate university, and small private college
