A teaching philosophy statement is an crucial part of your dossier. This will be a participatory workshop designed to help you write a statement of your teaching philosophy -- one that accurately reflects your personal beliefs and attitudes. We will begin with some simple exercises to help you identify what you feel is important about teaching in general and your teaching in particular. We will discuss how to translate the outcomes of these exercises into a coherent statement. With luck, there will also be plenty of time for questions. (Please bring paper and something to write with (or a laptop or tablet).)
