The teaching statement is a notoriously tricky genre for academic jobseekers. Most of us find it challenging to talk about our teaching without resorting to sentimentalism or cliches. This workshop will help you to describe your teaching in a way that feels concrete, persuasive, and authentic to you. We will discuss the hidden expectations embedded in the teaching statement and how to meet them. You will articulate your pedagogical approach by developing specific examples that showcase what you do in the classroom. You will have a chance to brainstorm ideas for a first draft or receive feedback on a draft in progress.
