Teaching Philosophy Statements

Course code: CTE196

DescriptionIncreasingly, academic job candidates are asked to provide a "teaching statement" or a "statement of teaching philosophy." For many of us, our first attempts at writing such statements seem "cheesy" or inauthentic. However, there is hope, especially if you can link your beliefs to examples from your own practice. Attend this hands-on workshop to work on your own teaching philosophy, and tie it to forms of evidence. No prior experience with this form of writing is assumed.


  • To receive a Fundamentals credit, you sign the attendance form from CTE staff at the workshop and arrive on time and stay for the entire workshop.
  • This workshop should be of special interest to Fundamentals participants who are interested in joining the Certificate in University Teaching (CUT) program.
