Teaching statements are an important component of many academic job applications, but they can be challenging to write. Receiving feedback from peers can provide you with recommendations on how to clarify and improve your main claims about your teaching. Allowing others to read your writing can also give you critical insight into how your target audience may understand and interpret your claims, which can help further refine your teaching statement.

In this workshop, participants will share their teaching statement drafts and engage in guided peer feedback.

This workshop is open to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from all departments and disciplines who have a draft of their teaching statement.

Please bring a draft of your teaching statement to the workshop to share.

This is an online workshop. The Zoom link will be sent to your email prior to the start of the event.
