Annual Philosophy of Teaching Workshop [Arts of Teaching]
Thursday, June 8, 2:00 - 3:30 pm, Swift 200
In this annual workshop, William Rando (Director, Chicago Center for Teaching) will guide students toward the production of a Philosophy of Teaching statement, part of the teaching portfolio for the academic job market. It will be an introduction to the principles of the PoT statement, aimed at those writing the statement and looking at the job market in the coming year or two. This workshop will serve as a jumping-off point for preparing job market materials over the summer in advance of the application season in the fall, and will suggest strategies for configuring the statement, incorporating teaching experience in a compelling way, and insights into the presentation of teaching competencies in a portfolio format.
Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity, should they wish to take it, to work on teaching materials over the summer and reassemble for a second time in late September. In part two, students will be able to work in a group context on the drafts of the PoT statements they have composed.
This workshop is also highly recommended to those intending to prepare a Philosophy of Teaching statement towards the completion of the Craft of Teaching certificate.
