Who among us hasn't filled up one to two (or more) pages with a teaching philosophy statement???
Whether for job, tenure, promotion, or award applications, preparing a teaching philosophy statement is a time honored tradition in academia. Buzz words are incorporated, descriptions of what we and our students are doing are included, and each statement is tailored in some way to the application guidelines.
But what if there were extreme contraints on the statement?
What if you had to capture the essence of your approach to teaching?
