Free “Writing Effective Teaching Statements: Peer Review” Workshop on September 12

Created: August 17, 2018

The Searle Center for Advanced Learning and Teaching is hosting a "Writing Effective Teaching Statements: Peer Review" Workshop on Wednesday, September 12, from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM at TGS Commons.

This workshop is free, but registration is required. It is open to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from all departments and disciplines who have a draft of their teaching statement.

Please bring 3 hard copies of your teaching statement draft to the workshop.

Workshop Description:

  • Teaching statements are an important component of many academic job applications, but they can be challenging to write.
  • In this workshop, participants will bring their teaching statement drafts and engage in guided peer feedback.
  • 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.

Facilitators: Lauren M. Woods, PhD and Kate Flom Derrick, MA
