RSVP: Teaching Statement Workshop
October 18, 2019
at the Writing Hub (Teaching + Learning Commons)
In this workshop, we will focus on creating and refining your Teaching Statement. Prior to and during the workshop, you will receive guidance on what to include in a teaching statement, and during the workshop there will be significant time devoted to dedicated work time either on your own writing or receiving peer feedback on a draft. This workshop will be particularly helpful to those going on the job market soon, though all are welcome.
