Submitting an Application: Teaching Statement

Submit online a teaching statement if you want to be considered for a teaching assistantship.

If you write a teaching statement, communicate your perspective on effective teaching or how people learn (i.e., a teaching philosophy) and describe your teaching experience (e.g., courses taught, grade level, responsibilities, and evidence of your teaching effectiveness such as student ratings or awards). The statement need not be long but should be carefully prepared (e.g., clear, well-organized, grammatical, engaging).
