Writing Your Teaching Statement: Tailoring to Specific Contexts
Drafting a Teaching Statement can be a challenging process, particularly for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who may have limited teaching experience.
In this workshop, participants will learn about some of the commonly recommended characteristics of teaching statements and practice how to modify an existing teaching statement draft or outline to suit the needs of various specific contexts, such as different institutional settings or working across disciplines.
Participants will leave the workshop with an understanding of where and how they can make small changes to their statements that will meet the requirements of a job or grant application.
The workshop is open to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from all departments and disciplines at Northwestern and at all stages of drafting their teaching statements.
