LCLS Graduate Program | Workshop Series

 October 22, 2021 @ 11am 

“Teaching Portfolio and Philosophy”
Run by Ager Gondra

The statement of teaching philosophy is an essential document for the academic job market and the cornerstone of any teaching portfolio. It articulates who we are as teachers, how we envision teaching in our discipline, and what strategies we use to actively engage our students. The process of writing a teaching statement pushes us to reflect critically on our teaching practices and how we communicate about teaching.

In this workshop we will discuss practical steps to draft a statement of teaching philosophy. Participants will also have the opportunity to review sample statements.

Workshop will be held over Zoom.

To join visit:  https://miami.zoom.us/j/4408994657

* This event is sponsored by the Department of Modern Languages & Literatures and the Joseph Carter Memorial Fund.
