Thinking about how you will present your teaching experience and teaching persona on the academic job market can be useful not only as a way of preparing for a job interview, but also as a way of clarifying for yourself the kind of teacher that you want to be, and the kinds of things that you value in an educational setting—whether or not you are at the point of seeking, or even want to seek, a tenure-track position. While the Bok Center will always be less prepared than your academic supervisor to initiate you into the specific expectations around teaching portfolios, teaching statements, and diversity statements that reign in your discipline, we are happy to offer general advice about how to talk about the things that you do in your classroom.
Graduate students: Schedule a consultation on your teaching statement or portfolio
