CATL Workshop: Communicating Your Teaching Philosophy

What does it mean to have a “teaching philosophy”? What values and beliefs about teaching and learning inform the ways we set up our courses or classrooms? How do we explain aspects of our teaching beliefs, values and practices to others – to students, to departmental or university colleagues, or to the other audiences we have in mind when writing, speaking, or reflecting on our teaching?  

In this interactive session, well use a structured interview process to surface and articulate the (sometimes tacit) beliefs and values that inform our teaching choices, and well discuss strategies for communicating those philosophies to various audiences.
