Teaching philosophies are standard components of CVs and tenure applications, but what if you’re a mid-career instructor? Is there value in crafting a statement around what you believe – especially when the process can be rather daunting?
In a recent post on the ACUE Community blog, Dannelle D. Stevens suggests that the metacognitive practice of creating a teaching statement is just as (if not more) valuable than the statement itself: “writing a teaching philosophy builds a deeper understanding about your teaching practice as well as your own distinct vocabulary about your teaching.”
