Workshop Series on Presenting Your Teaching on the Academic Job Market

These practical workshops are designed to familiarize graduate students with the materials most often requested in academic job applications -- teaching statements, documentation of teaching effectiveness, and teaching portfolios. More than a mark on a checklist, these documents help graduate students prepare to discuss teaching in a focused way during job interviews or informal networking situations. In this workshop series, graduate students learn about the uses and elements of a teaching portfolio, and have the opportunity to begin crafting and organizing parts of their own portfolios, including teaching statements. Graduate students also participate in peer review sessions, receiving both constructive feedback and an opportunity to have a sustained conversation about teaching. Registration is required for these workshops, which are announced to all graduate students via email. For more information, contact .
