Developing a Teaching Philosophy Statement

October 5, 2021 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm


University Center for Teaching and Learning

A teaching philosophy statement is a concise, compelling illustration of an instructor, a useful exercise in the reflexive examination of teaching, and a necessary component of many academic job applications. This workshop will provide the fundamentals of writing a teaching philosophy statement. We will look at previously developed teaching philosophy statements and implement effective revisions. 

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • create a compelling, concise statement that reflects the instructor's unique values.
  • articulate teaching objectives.
  • describe personal teaching methods.
  • discuss ways of determining teaching effectiveness.
  • reflect on impactful teaching.

This workshop may be counted toward the Pedagogy concentration of the Achievement in Pedagogy badge, offered through the Graduate Student Teaching Initiative. For more information, contact
