Your Teaching Philosophy
Transcript of Your Teaching Philosophy
How long should it be? Where will my philosophy be? A Teaching Philosophy often appears as part of a
Teaching Portfolio, which has two main uses—
summative and formative—
both of which involve evaluation What is summative and formative evaluation? 1.Summative Evaluation is used to demonstrate the quality of a person's work for hiring and promotion purposes or for purposes of passing a course of study. Summative evaluation judges the outcome of one's work.
2.Formative Evaluation is used as a means of assembling and examining one's work for the purposes of professional improvement. Formative evaluation seeks to identify areas to be improved and to suggest possible ways to make those improvements. What else would be in my portfolio?
Along with your Philosophy of teaching statement, your portfolio MAY include:
-Description of teaching responsibilities including a list of courses, number of students, and level of students (undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral)
-Course syllabi and sample course and assessment materials with reflective annotation/self-evaluation
-Description of course development or teaching improvement efforts
-Copies of papers or presentation on teaching topics
-Videotape of a sample of classroom teaching
-Records of teaching awards and honors Will things by other people be in my portfolio? Yes, some examples might be:
-Student evaluations of teaching summarized with reflective summary
-Student letters and/or thank you notes
-Peer class observation feedback
-Written assessment of course materials
-Graded/commented upon samples of student work with reflective summary
Where do I start my philosophy? by generating ideas!
Teaching philosophies express your values and beliefs about teaching.They are personal statements that introduce you, as a teacher, to your reader. As such, they are written in the first person and convey a confident, professional tone. When writing a teaching philosophy, you should use specific examples to illustrate your points. You should also discuss how your values and beliefs about teaching fit into the context of your discipline
A Philsophy of Teaching Statement should be 1-4 pages in length, although it should cover a lot of ground, a short and concise essay will be well recieved.
