Description:

Drafting a Teaching Statement can be a challenging process, particularly for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who may have limited teaching experience.

In this workshop, participants will learn about the characteristics of successful teaching statements and engage in the Generative Knowledge Interview process, which uses key moments as learners and teachers to help frame the value of teaching in their teaching statements.

This is a highly interactive workshop. Writing and discussing with peers is expected of all participants.

Participants will leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of the conventions of strong teaching statements and generated content for a teaching statement draft.

The workshop is open to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from all departments and disciplines, at all stages of drafting their teaching statements.

Please complete the pre-work assignments prior to the start of the workshop. You will receive the pre-work assignment with your registration confirmation email. You will receieve the meeting link the day before the workshop via email. 

Because there is pre-work assigned for this workshop, registration will be closed 24 hours before the start of the workshop.
