9/28 – Drafting Teaching Statements for the Job Market

On Wednesday, September 28th, from 6:30-8:00pm the Teaching and Learning Center and the Writing Center will host a workshop on Drafting Teaching Statements for the Job Market. We’ll discuss the role of the teaching statement within the larger job application, what makes a strong statement, how to frame what’s distinct about the CUNY experience, and how to approach the rhetorical challenge of crafting this document. We’ll examine sample statements from various disciplines, and work through a range of approaches.

This workshop will be held on Zoom. Please register beforehand at https://gc-cuny-edu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZckc–trjoiGN2eYyGKMBkgO5LgoyRAMIa2. You will then receive an email with a Zoom link.

Those wishing to receive feedback on drafts of their statements of teaching philosophy from the Writing Center can request a consultation with the Writing Center here: https://gcwritingcenter.commons.gc.cuny.edu/book-an-appointment/ or request a consultation with the TLC here: https://cuny.is/tlc-consultat.
