If you’re interested in a career in academia, a teaching statement that describes your approach to teaching and learning will be a key requirement for future job applications. In this workshop, you will reflect on your beliefs about teaching and learning, identify theorists that align with your views, and articulate concrete ways your philosophy is enacted in online or traditional classroom settings. This workshop is designed for all graduate students interested in teaching or preparing materials for a job search.

This webinar is for all graduate students and faculty who are interested in designing engaging lecture-discussions. The most successful educators treat lectures and discussions as conversations with their students (Bain, 2004). This webinar focuses on designing lectures that effectively blend class discussion to boost student engagement and improve learning.
