Job applications often ask for “statements of teaching philosophy,” but few of us may have seen what many of these statements look like and have little practice writing our own. In this interactive session, we look at some samples and proceed through a sequence of writing and discussion activities designed to help you identify what you value in your own teaching and how that is represented in concrete activities in the classroom. In addition, for those graduate teaching assistants hoping to get academic jobs at teaching focused institutions, a Teaching Portfolio will be a vital part of any successful job search. This workshop will explore the elements you will need in your philosophy and portfolio, offer strategies for developing items that represents a learner-focused instructor, and explore several on-line services and tools for maintaining your portfolio through graduation and beyond.
