Schreyer Institute workshop to focus on writing a teaching philosophy statement

November 13, 2017

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence will offer a free workshop titled “Writing Your Teaching Philosophy Statement” from noon to 1:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 14, in 315 Rider Building at University Park.

The workshop will be repeated from 10 to 11:15 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 15, in 7A Sparks Building, also at University Park.

A teaching philosophy statement is required by many search committees as part of the faculty hiring process. In this hands-on workshop, facilitated by Chas Brua, Michael Murphy, Moji Shahvali and Wideline Seraphin, participants will identify their central beliefs about teaching and consider kinds of evidence they can use to show those beliefs in action.

This workshop satisfies a requirement for the Instructional Foundations Series for new instructors.
