Academic Job Search: Tackling Teaching Statements and Demonstrations (PhDs & Postdocs)

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 -
9:00am to 11:00am
2nd Floor Conference Room - BEAM, Stanford Career Education BEAM, Stanford Career Education Stanford University, 563 Salvatierra Walk, Stanford, CA 94305

One of the written elements often requested for a faculty job application is a "teaching statement." What makes an effective teaching statement? You will review examples of statements from successful job seekers. You will begin to identify the points you want to make and the examples you want to use. We will also discuss how to provide "evidence of teaching excellence" and succeeding at the "teaching demonstration." Even if none of the colleges and universities to which you apply ask for a separate teaching statement, the thinking that you do about your teaching as you draft a teaching statement, will strengthen your cover letters and interviews. This workshop is presented by Dr. Amanda Modell, from Stanford's Center for Teaching and Learning.
