Thursday, September 29, 2016 4:00 - 5:00 PM Where: Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning, 7th floor, Sciences Library

Many applications for faculty positions require a teaching statement/philosophy. This interactive workshop will draw on research about the use of teaching philosophies in academic job searches to identify constituents of an effective statement. Participants will also gain tools to start drafting and enhancing their own statements. This session focuses on teaching statements for positions in the humanities and social sciences. (Please see October 18 session for STEM.) Pre-register HERE: https://sheridan-center.appshosting.com/pma/apex/f?p=210:76:0::NO::P76_E...
