Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence to hold workshops

September 09, 2019

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence has announced programming for the week of Sept. 9.

The following two workshops will be held:

Writing a Teaching Statement for the Job Market

Tuesday, Sept. 10, 12:05-1:20 p.m., 315 Rider Building, University Park

A teaching statement (also called a teaching philosophy) is required by many search committees as part of the faculty hiring process.

In this hands-on workshop, facilitated by Chas Brua and Deena Levy, participants will identify their central beliefs about teaching and will 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. Register here.

Teaching So All Your Students Are Included

Wednesday, Sept. 11, 10:10-11:25 a.m., 315 Rider Building, University Park

Students and instructors all bring unique personal histories to the classroom. One of our responsibilities as teachers is to make sure that our classes are places where all students — regardless of their backgrounds or identities — feel welcome to learn.

In this workshop, facilitated by Chas Brua and Jamie Kim, participants will talk about practical strategies for teaching inclusively.

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