General Guidelines for your Teaching Philosophy Statement:
– Make your Teaching Statement brief and well written.
– Use a narrative, first-person approach. This allows the Teaching Statement to be both personal and reflective.
– Make it specific rather than abstract. Ground your ideas in 1-2 concrete examples, whether experienced or anticipated. This will help the reader to better visualize you in the classroom.
– Be discipline-specific. Do not ignore your research. Explain how you advance your field through teaching.
– Avoid jargon and technical terms, as they can be off-putting to some readers.
– Try not to simply repeat what is in your CV. Teaching Statements are not exhaustive documents and should be used to complement other materials for the hiring or tenure processes.
-Be sincere and unique. Avoid clichs, especially ones about how much passion you have for teaching.
-Be humble. Mention students in an enthusiastic, not condescending way, and illustrate -your willingness to learn from your students and colleagues.
– Revise. Teaching is an evolving, reflective process, and Teaching Statements can be adapted and changed as necessary.
