Writing effectively about your teaching is an important skill that you will need for the academic job search, grant submissions, and your future academic position. In this workshop, led by Dr. Mariatte Denman from VPTL, we will discuss a range of conceptual and organizational principles that will help you to organize your reflections and thoughts about teaching in order to write a compelling teaching statement. We will also analyze real examples of teaching statements.
