When entering the job market, you need to be prepared to articulate your teaching values and methods for search committees, especially those that will not be able to observe you teaching. The goal of a teaching statement is to provide a picture of you in the classroom by articulating why you teach and how you teach, including your goals for student learning and your methods for achieving those goals. This session will explore the purposes of the teaching statement, and help you draft your own by providing prompts for reflection and other guidelines for creating a discipline-specific description of your teaching philosophy and prowess.
