Workshop description

Documenting your teaching in a dossier involves harmonizing claims, narrative descriptions of practice, and evidence. This process can be guided by preparing your own teaching philosophy statement, which is a kind of thesis for the argument you wish to make about yourself as a teacher.

Participants in this session will leave with some writing done toward a new or revised teaching philosophy that reflects beliefs, goals, and approaches to undergraduate and/or graduate teaching. They will also have made progress on several other components of a teaching dossier, along with a plan to gather evidence for completion and ongoing maintenance.
