Part 2 | HBC TeachTalks: Writing Effective Teaching Statements | Monday, October 19 | 5-6:15pm | via Zoom

Teaching statements are important data points that help you evidence your impactful teaching. This session will guide you on articulating your teaching philosophy as well as strategies to evidence its enactment in course design, pedagogy, and teaching methods. We will reflect together on our teaching practices and how they evolved over semesters. What innovations have we made in our courses? To what extent have we embraced experiential learning? How did we incorporate our research into teaching? The focus will be on providing evidence of the many ways in which you have reached your learners. We will go over a suggested list of topics to include in your statement and help you tailor it to the needs of your respective committee chairs.
