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

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.
